Perl mentoring.

Well, this is rather amusing.

My mentor at work has come across a small project he needs to do, and he's intending to use Perl for it. However, he's never used Perl before.

I on the other hand, while by no means an expert, have used Perl often enough to be comfortable and reasonably proficient in it.

I have thus become my Mentor's Perl Mentor. <g>

Last night's fun.

I had a great time last night. I went to a local place called The Chance to watch a concert.

The headliner of the show was SR-71, with special guests Dexter Freebish.

Prior to the show, I was prolly more looking forward to Dexter Freebish, as I'm more familiar with them, and because my roommate saw them a month or two ago, and really enjoyed it. However, as good as they were (and they were good), I thought SR-71 was better. They're a little harder edged and more rocking than I'd expected (I was only really familiar with one of their songs). I was impressed.

I'm prolly gonna be buying both Band's albums soon.

It looks like both bands are gonna be touring together for a while, so if they come near you, I'd strongly suggest checking 'em out.

In other good news, I found out at the concert that Eve 6 is gonna be here in a few weeks, and the other big news, announced at last night's show, is that the Mighty Mighty Bosstones are gonna be here in a month. Now that is a show I really wanna catch.

There's also some New York Ska band called The Toasters coming in a week that I might check out. I've never heard of them myself (Admittedly, I'm fairly new to Ska), but most Ska bands are entertaining to listen to live, at the least. ;-)

This is turning into a concert-filled month for me. ;-)

Toys on their way.

I got a notice on my door yesterday, saying that I had a package waiting for me at UPS. This would be my old computer, which recently died, which I get to fix.

Additionally, according to Crucial's referral to UPS's website tracking page, my Laptop's new RAM arrived at IBM this morning, so it should arrive at my office tomorrow.

My Laptop shipped on the same day as my memory (the 13th), so hopefully it'll be arriving soon. Although, I have a bad feeling they'll attempt to deliver it tomorrow, at which point they'll discover that I'm not home (a downside to working days), and I'll prolly end up picking it up on Monday. It'd be nice to have it for the weekend, though. ;-)
