Just a few hours before I leave. Unsubbed from a few mailing lists, backed up my palm pilot and retested my otp login. I am in touch with relatives and will meet them for the first time next week. I also contacted some Perl Mongers in both Sydney and Melbourne and they're planning meetings. Should be nice. I don't expect to have much in the way of net access and, if I should, I probably won't have time to blog. Yeah, it's a real loss to the world.
