I am on call today at work even though I am working from home (Gotta put food on the table for "Tiny Tim"). So like everyday while working, I am HERE at the true center of the internet, PerlMonks!!! And, I am proud to be here!!! blacksmith.
I just finished helping my parents cook the Christmas turkey, and I decided to pop in, check my exp, and see if the poll changed. Oh, might as well say 'hi' while I'm here before I leave to go feed myself and shred wrapping paper off of gifts.
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!
/me got an Offical 1st Edition Perl Shirt. (which I can't see to find a link to.)
