That new contact info over there --->

As part of the whole "stepping away from Parrot" thing, I've unsubscribed from all the parrot and perl related mailing lists (including the cabal list), I'm not logging into perlmonks or use.perl, and I'm not doing IRC any more. Maybe someday in the future, but for right now... nope.

If you need to get in touch with me, e-mail works and I've usually got an AIM client (AdiumX -- quite nice) running, so you're welcome to ping me that way. No promises I'll answer -- I'm wrapping up the $WORK_PROJECT and looking for a new one -- but it never hurts to try.

Is that the end of this blog then? I hope not, I only just found it and the "What the Heck is" series is one of the most educational set of posts I've read!

But it's your life; do what you want and all the best!

It's not the end, but this is winding down. Once all the outstanding design docs, retrospectives, deconstructions of past mistakes, and self-delusional wankings about a nonexistent past are done, though, I'll be closing up shop here. Comments and trackbacks'll be closed and the blog itself will be left as a historical curiosity for intrepid explorers of the ShubInternet.

Some satisfaction can be had from joining the Perl channels under the alias "rooster" and just issuing hundreds of variations of "cock-a-doodle-doo" or "ruck-a-rucka-roo" or just a simple "doodle-doo" throughout the day until you get kicked. I often join #ruby-lang and flood the channel till I get banned. Well, not often. I've never really done it. But time and time again I've threatened to. I usually end up going to a movie theatre and sleeping during the movie, letting mothballs fall from my pockets.

Basically, handing mothballs to kids at the movies is a great way to blow off steam and get away from the InterNest. Especially with everyone hating on us all the time.

_why: You have some serious issues to work through but I think I would want you as a friend if I wasn't shunning all humanity this month.
