Uh, all of the above? Good God, we're all living the stereotype: Fat, single, technology-obsessed geeks, now returned to the pre-internet days when the ability to write #!/usr/bin/perl didn't gaurantee $40K to start.

  • Lose weight: Yep, 12 hours a day in front of a keyboard will do that to you. So will turning 30 if you're not careful. This year, I intend to lose 20 pounds by Comic-con. To translate to perl:
    s/Comic-Con/Oreilly Open Source Con/g.
    s/San Diego/Portland/g
  • Get In Shape: see above
  • Money Related: Yep, Bush's new tax cut for the hyper-rich oughta take care of that. Wait, sorry, wrong web site.
  • Get a Date: See "Get In Shape/Lose Weight". Ignore the part about comic books.
  • Become an Uber-Coder: Sadly, this pretty much requires biting the bullet and learning C. Maybe.
  • Win the Lottery : Hmm, odds of winning: 1 in 7 million. Yep, that's worth $1 a week.
  • Get a life : I have a life. I just need a better one.
  • Get a new job : Hopefully, this won't be neccessary.
  • Other: I am always open to other.
