  • About: I like Perl.
  • Commented on Site Front Page
    I don't agree with the premise (that "long posts on the front page are bad"), but since you're committed to doing something, I have a couple of suggestions. In addition to "autochopping" I think you should make the fact that...
  • Commented on Crowd funding Pinto
    I love Pinto and Jeffrey was extremely responsive and helpful when I had a minor issue (more misunderstanding on my part). Good luck!...
  • Commented on Encouraging bloggers to use the 'extended' feature
    It sounds like your premise is that long posts on the main page are somehow bad. I like reading long posts inline without having to click each article and load a new page, what's the big deal? I recommend leaving...

    Also would love to point out which in combination with latest cpanm and carton, even can get the specific versions without that you ever stored them specific away.

    So, could you please correct the crowdtilt and make it clear that its for stratopan? Or correct your blog post what is the crowdtilt about, I just get confused, and everyone else, too... Schwern really believes that those 4096$ go purly into opensource stuff, but if it is used to startup the stratopan beta as a paid service, then i dont feel like you are promoting it right. So please correct the crowdtilt, then we can all sleep well :).

    Thanks in advance, and i hope it gets not deleted again.

    It's not for Stratopan. It's for Pinto. Everyone will benefit from this and Jeff's work is for open source. The result will end up on CPAN. I've already said that in a previous comment.

    However, there isn't a difference between a paid hosted service and open source. Think Linode for instance. They can run linux for you or you can run it yourself.

    I think it has to be automatic, as some of the people doing it seem to be using cross-posting solutions that will clearly ignore any text suggestions. This has also come up often enough that others who are doing walls of text are either not reading other entries or just don't care.

    I like this! Would be cool if flattr ( could be used for this and perhaps also any cpan/perl project in general.
