I didn't see many stupid hats while in Texas but there was this giant mirrored Armadillo statue next to the BBQ place

Yes, that really is a portrait of Colonel Sanders in the University of Houston Hilton. No, I don't know why.

You can't even see the pipes in the ceiling from this angle.

First thing I see getting off the plane at IAH. I'm not sure why this was news.

This statue is about 12 feet high, maybe about the same length. Looks formidable outside the place.

The rig. It smelled so damn good I was willing to overlook what we'll call an unusual approach to food safety.

The Larry Wall action figure that was auctioned off at yapcna2006.

This excellent Kansan beer (and much more) was generously donated to the Perl Email Project by the good people at They are looking for volunteers.

This poster of Alyssa Milano is left over from the 2000 Campaign for 1-800-COLLECT. Does anyone even use pay phones any more?

This shirt was pointed out to me at the registration desk in OB Hall Sunday afternoon.

I love love love this restaurant. It's a mostly-vegan place called Pepper Tree. We went on a Sunday night, where for $12 we could fill our plates with the dozens of different delicious foodstuffs they had. When they ran out of some dish, they would replace it with something different, so every time you made another trip to the buffet you had a different set of choices. Everything was absolutely delicious. Especially the curry, and the salady thing with walnuts, and the cake, and the sushi, and the sesame balls, and everything else too.


The only way it could possibly be better is if the sesame balls contained red bean paste. (Instead, it was chocolate.)

At the four minute mark of a lightning talk, you got a nice little bell. At the five minute mark, you got gonged!

Burger King. Double stacker, large fries, diet coke, BBQ sauce.


Normally the pre-YAPC meal is waffles, but that didn't work out due to this year's travel plans. Eating BK en route to YAPC is my big shout out to Phil R. Lawrence.

This was the roof of the student center at the University of Houston.

Perl6 arrives not before Christmas. Here's a wishful Larry Wall hoping that it arrives soon.

Day 1 - An Introduction To Perl Critic

The University wireless couldn't handle us (as usual) so the YAPC folks ran out and bought a pile of routers

Elizabeth Cortell gave a lightning talk on

Cellular Automata Knitting with Perl
