People using Songbee - by the way, please email me, so I know that there actually are some - particularly those using Songbee on Windows, should upgrade to version 1.1, released today. Get it at the usual place. It fixes a few display issues with furigana, and it also gives you a search bar that you can actually see, rather than having to just stab wildly at.

So I just enjoyed my first YAPC::Asia! It was good to see some of the old crowd again, both Japanese and foreigner, and also to see the huge interest in Perl from newer faces as well. Although I was not expecting to find the talks interesting - the less programming I do, the more I feel out of these things - there was a lot of good stuff on.
Today it is so cold that I am doing all I can to stop myself from declaring the day over, and curling up in bed with the fan heater and the electric blanket and a half-dozen other blankets on top. And it's only six pm. This is not good.
