My sister put this little jazz quartet together a couple months ago. We played one song. Here it is.
So I’ve been playing in this country band for the last several years, purely for fun. Our cardinal rule as a band is “do not overprepare” which means we might practice for an hour or so ahead of a gig, but rarely more than that. The second rule is “you may not sing a song you wrote” which sounds funny till you realize that nearly everyone in the band is a songwriter. It’s a fun bunch of folks and the vibe is definitely low key.
Thanks to Dave for the technical work.
After 4 years of learning how to glue Perl and C together with XS and many sleepless nights, I have released SWISH::3 to the CPAN.

Mostly this is a triumph of longevity rather than quality code. It’s taken me this long to get something workable.
I recently reactivated my free yahoo.com email account so that I could test something for $work. I signed up for it 12 years ago, but stopped using it a couple of years later when I got my own domain @peknet.com. So yahoo finally deactivated it. All I had to do was click a couple of buttons to reactivate account, so that was painless. All my mail was, understandably, deleted.
Within 60 seconds of reactivating it, while I watched, I got one new message. In my Spam bucket. Hilarious.
I’d been keeping an email with a link to Ovid’s journal article about reviewing Perl Training websites. Now I’ve deleted the email. But the link was worth keeping here.
