Long time, no post. That's mainly because winter in Wisconsin absolutely completely fucking sucks. Seriously.
But now it's spring, and all is much better. I've been giving the grill a good workout this weekend and I bought a bike from a local bike shop to better enjoy the town. It's been 15ish years since I had a bike and I forgot how damn much fun it is to ride around. It's also been a longer time since I road in an urban setting, so some re-learning of how to deal with traffic and streets has been interesting.
Among other recent springtime revelations: I think I'm starting to like perl more than php. We do lots of perl at work and afer doing perl and then hitting php again, it seemed really restrictive. I'm planning a personal php project to see if that's really true, or because my php skills are just really rusty.
