in reply to How many showed up at the monastery on Christmas 2002?
After two large meals, the Ritual Opening of Presents and lots of chat with my in-laws in Burlington, I finally rationalized that it would be OK to log on to the Internet.
I actually did some work-related stuff first (researching modules for parsing Apache configuration, with a view to dynamically generating the httpd.conf from a smaller configuration file + input parameters), then sidled over to PM .. and couldn't resist this poll.
No Perl-related gifts to report, but I did get another 128M RAM for my Mandrake box -- it now has Apache, proftpd and SSH running, woo-hoo!
Happy Ho Ho to one and all!
but my friends call me T.
