After the conference was officially over, I had some time to hang out with Zak and Jim (from MySQL AB), Shane from ActiveState, Scott, and a few other folks. We munched on the hotel bar's snacks, had a few drinks, and chatted about lots of geeky stuff and some not-so-geeky stuff.
But if there was any doubt as to our true nature, the truth was revealed when Zak busted out a notebook to get down-and-dirty with the source code to figure out the right way of fixing PHP's mysql_pconnect() so that it'd be less wasteful of connections.
Heh. Oh, well. Another conference over. Met lots of good people, some new and some old.
Perhaps some of them will even be at PHPCon East 2003. :-)
