  • Commented on Your Personal CPAN In The Sky
    I also like the idea in several aspects. But freedom and authority would be the two major factor that makes me happy. Current CPAN basically suggests people name their distribution according to some fuzzy classification rules. Top level namespaces tend...
  • Commented on Being anti-social
    You cloud just `echo "0.0.0.0 twitter.com" > /etc/hosts` and leave it there for a while... :-)...
  • Commented on GitHub-like activity indicator for authors and distributions
    That looks sweet! In the output SVG, I'd like to suggest to change `width="100%" height="100%"` to some pixel value like `width="177px" height="22px"`. This makes it looks nicer to when using img tag to contain the svg, and it is also...

    FYI. Snow Leopard user can simply use Quicktime to record full screen....
  • Commented on Combinatory Substitution
    I like the question and came up with a recursive solution. The code is posted here: http://gugod.org/2010/07/post-79.html It probably dose not meet your original requirement but it's fun thinking the solution. Thanks for the question :)...

    I tried recording myself at OSCON with mixed results. I set up an extra microphone (the built-in mic gets too much laptop noise) and used "recordMyDesktop" for Linux. Everything worked great for about 25 minutes, until I tried to open a Firefox window in the presentation and my machine crashed hard and rebooted itself. My notebook has never rebooted itself in this way. So, I had to do the rest of the presentation without recording the screen (plus I lost some time in restarting my presentation).

    I don't know exactly where the problem was -- Firefox, recordmydesktop, Linux, or eve…

    Thanks for all the comments, I didn't know that about Quicktime on 10.6, and good to know there is a linux option.

    Typically, even though I ran a full test before hand, the software crashed at the end of my talk! - So *cheer* for conference organisers (and others) who have uploaded the Perl Talk Videos

    gugod, CPAN is about sharing, and if you just toss random-named stuff into the pot, you wind up with a cesspool like Python's PyPi or Ruby's Gems. Their authors are frequently vain hipsters who appear to be in a contest to make the weirdest names.

    Whenever somebody makes a comparison of Perl to another language, the first pro in Perl's favor is CPAN. If we lose the community professionalism for the resource it no longer becomes a selling point. I always avoid odd-named modules unless they have reached critical mass (like Moose or Dancer) because it usually reveals the author was thin…

    I think that is Kang-min's point: to use the Perl toolchain *without* having to coordinate namespaces. A custom CPAN-like repository would let you do just that. If you eventually do decide to release to the public CPAN, *then* you can worry about namespaces. But until then, you can just point cpanm at your repository in the cloud to get your stuff, no matter what it is called.

    Some developers still feel that CPAN-style distributions are only useful for code that will be released to the public CPAN. I want to help dispel that belief.
