    I would have totally voted for

    Apocalypse

      "Due to the financial crisis, the plans for the end of the world aftershow party are currently on hold."

    "Other": It's not a crisis, it's a pageant. All we need is a theme, a song and some visuals...

    This is an easy one to want to group a few:

    Hope (Keep positive)
    Journeys (Blaze new trails)
    Learning (Always...)
    Projects (2013 Honey-Do's!)
    Toys (The gift of accomplishment)

    But, Fitness Plan for me to get back on track after the holidays. Well, that's how I'm describing it. heh

    New Year, new Hope! That the Crisis will Resolve and our Struggle comes to an end, because Perl 6 will finally come to our Machines, with all the required Schemes and Modules, so we can migrate our Projects and Work becomes easier and more efficient! Imagine having time for a Fitness plan or even Learning new Dance moves - the Family will be impressed. We could go on long Journeys and play with the Toys the kids got for christmas. There is no other answer to that poll: New Year, new Hope!

    Learning!

    For the last few months, I've been mulling over a web-app that would use AJAX to do something that I currently do manually with a clipboard (a real one, with a paper form that I fill out) and a spreadsheet. I've start to fiddle around with the database end using sqlite3, and I plan to use Dancer to run the app that I eventually develop. And I want it to be AJAXy so that I can use it on the tablet I expect to buy sometime this year.

    Would building robots controlled by Perl be considered Toys, Machines, Projects, or Schemes?

    It is definitely going to involve Struggle, Hope, Resolve, and Work...

      A few small ones: Toys.

      Robot army with lasers that steal your medicine: Scheme.

      I vote for more schemes.

      Sincerely, I hope the new year sees you find a new job, closer to home.

        Hey thanks very much man, I appreciate that.

        I was so blind-sided by this that I'm stuck in the position I was in last time, where I have to take the first thing that says yes. Of course that becomes a pretty viscous cycle. I'll get out of it somehow.

        If only I could make a living wage working with wood, steel or flour and sugar :)

    Struggle. Because if you're not straining to do just a little bit better all the time, then life would get incredibly boring. My struggle these days is mostly over the Go board.
      I was REALLY hoping that was a link to a perl implementation of Go. :-)

    Journey - relocating for the first time in 14 years. I need to remember how to make new friends.
    Family - mini-programmer #2 due in April!
    Learning - I hope this never ends.

    (A belated) Happy New Year to all. Hope your resolutions are still going strong.

      New family, mini-programmer #1 is due April 17!
