Open source stuff

It is always fun to get your name attached to something somewhere. I usually do that kind of stuff in spurts. In the past week or so, I've been excelling at it, it would seem.

I just finished writing up a few paragraphs for a person that is co-authoring O'Reilly's next version of the DBI book. This came after I sent him a slew of bug reports for one of his modules that I had discovered while working on pairNIC. If it doesn't get cut between now and publishing time, there will hopefully be a small case study written by me included in the next edition of that book. I guess I'll end up having to buy a copy.

I'm also going to be giving a talk at the next Pittsburgh Perl Mongers about a coding technique that we are using within pairNIC.

So, I guess it has been a big week for me and getting my name out in the open-source community.

In other news, NLATS is just around the corner and so is commissioner training. I'm probably going to end up being assistant disctrict commissioner for the Busy Run distrctict. I'm going to help troops install some new scouting software on their computers.

And in other news, I've finally beat minesweeper at the expert level.
