in reply to Perl 6 release date

Well I'll put in a vote for:

2004-07-30 (July 30th, 2004 (My 30th))

But I hope its much, much sooner. I'm glad I have parrot-0.0.8 to play with *right now* but I want a fully fledged language, with an O'Reilly book to boot! Seeing Damian Conway talk on perl6 was great - I only wish I was about 10,000x more of a programmer than I am so I could help out with development!!!

Re^2: Perl 6 release date

    It's 2014 folks and Perl 6 still isn't released yet. We've waited fourteen long years. What can we do to accelerate this process.

    There's a lot of us in our 30 thirties now that don't want Perl to be a dead language.

    We invested time in learning it, and would like it to mean something on our resumes and on production servers everywhere.

    Please don't let python kick our ____ now.

[Corion]: Hi Lady_Aleena!
[Lady_Aleena]: Corion, how are things?
[Corion]: Lady_Aleena: Quite good ;) I'm working four days now, instead of five, which helps my mood and my weekends tremendously
[Corion]: My Perl output hasn't recovered, but as $work is still somewhat stressful, I don't think this would be different with a five day workdweek
[Lady_Aleena]: Corion, that is a good thing (TM) 8)
[Corion]: And this evening, I'm actually dusting off some old module of mine and bringing it up to the last version of the library I'm wrapping
[Lady_Aleena]: Updating things can be fun, if there is a better way to do it.
[Corion]: Lady_Aleena: Mostly, it's just housekeeping, but it inspires me about things I could do with it, so that's good ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: By the way, I stopped by to let someone know I'm still alive, though I haven't found anything to write in perl for a while now.
