Just to give people an update on where I am after the spill and subsequent events at YAPC:
First of all, I need *AGAIN* to give my thanks to:
@Amal1a_ (Amalia) (and everyone else at Evozon for supporting me)
@renatolrr - (Renato) YAPC Coordinator, gofer and frequent bedside supporter during the last 3 weeks of hell
@Makova65 - (Manu) Another bedside confidante and inadvertent Andalusian Spanish tutor
@jjmerelo - (JJ Merelo) Another coordinator, gofer and @YEF director, I think.
And those that I can't find on Twitter - Maribel, Victor, Pablo, Paloma and Jose. Pretty much everyone responsible for YAPC::EU 2015, probably.
I can't thank you enough, you made my last 3 weeks bearable, I'm not sure what I would've done if I were just staring at off-yellow hospital walls for 3 weeks. I *SHALL* return to Granada, and Manu, I *will* take you up on your offer.
We immediately reached our minimum of $1,701; now our goal is to reach $20K in the next 9 days. We can do it... WITH YOUR HELP!
STEP 1: Make a generous pledge.
STEP 2: Get your friends to match your pledge.
STEP 3: Get your boss to double your pledge.
STEP 4: Go back and increase your pledge.
STEP 5: PERL WILL BE THE FASTEST LANGUAGE EVER.
Thanks so much for your continued support of RPerl!

The topic arose at $work recently: what do the cool kids use for dates these days? Our sysadmin was looking for a simple way to get “tomorrow.” Of course, the cool kids are theoretically using DateTime, right? So, how do we get “tomorrow” out of DateTime? The answer came back in our chat room:
Well, okay ... that would work. But it’s not exactly what I’d call “easy.”
