  • Commented on Powered by mod_perl
    In general, it's not a great idea volunteering too much extra information to potentially misbehaved folks. At a minimum, the following two directives should be present in the apache2.conf file: ServerSignature Off ServerTokens Prod...

  • Commented on Perl Jobs
    Never bet all your chips on a single programming language, not even if it's Perl. If you really like software engineering, and you are at the beginning of your career where you have more time over to be flexible, you...
  • Commented on Perl, a multi paradigm language
    Many people still consider it a serious shortcoming that Perl code can be written in different ways, which at first glance seems like a perfectly valid argument. However, like you I believe that it provides the necessary extra flexibility to...

    If a programming language is good enough, then it will just sell itself. Despite all those so-called statistical analyses, articles, etc....
  • Commented on 100% Test Coverage?
    If you have the luxury of starting with a fresh new code-line, an incremental approach which strives for 100% coverage would be to start with a small baseline and make that (maximally) 100% covered. Every additional piece of code from...

    Mojolicious::Lite apps. No dependencies.


    All you need is ./lib for Mojolicious, and the executable which can include both code and images.


    Done.

    @brian d foy - you know how drug dealers supposedly give out the first few doses to hook you on the drug? Yes - the cheapest solutions are not professional and will not scale and will not work for anything that is of any value - but they are a way to try out your ides. So if you think you have some idea for a web site you can cheaply and quickly try it out - and then abandon it if it does not work - or expand and improve it if it does and buy more expensive hosting packages. chromatic already said it - this is what disruptive innovation is about. Perl used to be in this area when 'cgi…

    Couple of points from someone working at a hosting company. Most people think $3/month is a total rip off. Why? Because even though they spend more at Starbucks they are told that they can get it for $2.99 and therefore we must be making out like bandits.


    Way back when people have changed hosting companies because company Y offers 200 POP3 mailboxes instead of our 100. I have pointed out to customers that if they're only using 3 mailboxes then the hassles involved make it pointless if they are not saving money, but the mind set for many people is still that the lowest price me…

    Yes, drug dealers may give out free samples, but have you ever looked at the economics of dealing drugs? It's a very high risk business that takes over your life and returns little reward requiring you to constantly find new people to deal with, all the while enriching a very small group of people. Dealers dream of making it big while very few do. Your metaphor illustrates my point quite well. You'll spend most of your time dealing with people you don't really want to deal with, and most likely wasting your time in the end. You'll either get clean, abandoning the project all together, or…

  • Jesse Thompson commented on Powered by mod_perl

    I wonder who will be detecting this header?


    Perhaps web developers who want to know what technology is being used to run your awesome web app would look.


    it's not a great idea volunteering too much extra information


    I agree. But ServerSignature Off / ServerTokens Prod still shows "Apache". So I don't think it's that big of a deal to show "mod_perl"


    Leaving out "/2.0" seems wise (although it doesn't indicate the actual version.)


    FWIW, I pulled the config line out of an old document created by …
