    I logged in last year at one point and I think there were 3 of us here - that's the lowest head count I've seen...

    Maybe i'll return for breakfast and see if that can be beaten...

    ...by now, there have been 37 of us. Well then, I guess this is our family.

    Have a fine holiday one and all.

    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.

    When I voted earlier, my vote made 5... now I see it up to 42-both interesting numbers. :)

    Lucky enough to not have to work this Christmas, but on-call, and have worked my share of holidays thus far.

    About to leave to start running to and fro to see family and friends, so I'll leave with this wish for you all:

    May the gifts of the season be upon you, the coming year bring for you peace, prosperity, and all the best, and may you and yours enjoy a safe and joyous holiday season.

    Whoohoo ;)

    I was here, too. But I think there are just a few other things with a more important priority :)

      Nice! You've no idea how many times The Perl Cookbook has helped me out. My copy has seen better days now though :-)

    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!

    I would have voted for 111 but that wasn't an option.

    I'm surprised the new world has not given more visitors as the day goes by.
