    [marto]: good morning all
    [Corion]: Hi marto!
    [choroba]: Good morning!
    [Corion]: I hope you had a good weekend!
    [marto]: jetlag has really done a number on the kids, it's been a tough week
    choroba played with the band on Saturday, so Sunday was very sleepy
    [choroba]: managed to release Syntax::Construct with 5.28 support in the night, though
    [Corion]: choroba: Whee ;)
    [Corion]: marto: Ouch - I would've thought that kids adapt much better, but that's obviously not the case...
