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!!!

    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.

[ambrus]: though it's very C-like (serious use of varargs so easy to pass the wrong type), and there are some minor problems (busy loop because it doesn't use the same timer as your event loop, so you have to artificially delay timer callbacks by a small amount).
