Commented on Sexual Harassment?
I think it is creating a hostile workplace. We techie guys underestimate this. Imagine that you are trying to get some serious coding done and yet every time you open a file, every time you page down, you need to...
Commented on A plan for revamping and replacing the Perl debugger.
Why the need or urge to replace the existing debugger? A better one is great, but there are surely people who use the old one to great effect and know it like the back of their hands. Build a better...
Commented on When Perl is not applicable
I feel uncomfortable posting a negative comment while knowing so little about the problem but saying "never do large data aggregation in SQL and Perl" is very provocative and forces me to comment, admittedly somewhat in ignorance. Your data set...
Commented on The Mind-killer
I think the comments stand up fine without knowing anything about the app. Joel Spolsky's article was about the folks who want to throw away what they have and start over from scratch, and I completely agree with him. Refactoring...
Commented on A distributed design challenge
Same caveat as yanick, except I didn't spend anywhere near 5 minutes on this! Is it feasible for everyone to know what percent of the budget is available? If so, slow down bidding on a campaign as budget limit is...
Commented on Do you remember when...
Congratulations! I'm sorry I can't be there. Your organizing effort has been amazing, such a great job. Thanks!...
Commented on The Making of Mojocasts
Beautiful job on the screencasts, looking forward to more! I've made a couple of screencasts, and the process you describe is exactly right. I didn't have iMovie and found the audio level to be a major problem. The whole process...
Commented on What's In A Name?
How about But I like the renaming better....

To me its a little heavy handed. ... He should have used Moo! (ba-dum).
Truthfully, I'll echo the others. Assuming Matt's advanced haven't been rebuffed before, and that they are on good terms, I don't think telling someone that they are awesome and politely asking on a date is inherently harassment.
Personally, I think its a rather cute tactic. Of course the situation is different, but who can forget (ok, I just found out about it) the proposal on PerlMonks!

thanks for the recommendation of "The Guy’s Guide to Feminism". I ordered the ebook and are half through it. although i'm not part of the main target audience, it has some interesting points. some of them were also mentioned by several people in the recent discussions.

You may check Devel::ebug ; it's a module that provide a clean API over the perl debugger.

(Sorry for commenting a 4 months old post...)
I fully agree on the "removing fear" aspect, since this was exactly one of the Aha! moments from my first serious experiment with TDD. Some months ago I wrote an "automator" for one of the more painful, manual processes I have to perform from time to time at work (build & package software releases for embedded targets).
I knew the Perl code would grow to several hundreds of lines, and the finished, automated process simeply HAD to work EVERY time, so I figured this would be a good time to get down and dirty with TDD. Yes, it took l…
