  • Commented on Please Publish Perl Events on the LWN.net Calendar
    djzort has opened a ticket on Act's repository on Git Hub (thanks) » https://github.com/book/Act/issues/39...
  • Commented on So, Kiev 2013
    If there are things like books or t-shirts to sell, a silent auction will do. A live auction is only interesting if there are truly exceptional things. But if you have none, no need to make up something artificial. As...
  • Commented on Is PCLI possible?
