  • Commented on The Design of Four
    I don't know if that's meant to be meta-irony, but the part of the article that begins with "Repeated perfection can be boring," seems to have been double-pasted. :-)...
  • Commented on Play Perl is a Startup
    You, sir, are a brave man. Best of luck! I hope we'll be able to give you a hand along the way!...
  • Commented on Introducing Platform
    In related modules, there is also Devel::AssertOS and its Dist::Zilla plugin....
  • Commented on Mark your modules as adoptable if you don't want them
    That's closely related to my maintainer flag in the METAs (http://babyl.dyndns.org/techblog/entry/help-wanted). The support is already merged in with MetaCPAN. There is indubitably an occasion here to merge the two efforts together....
  • Commented on CPAN module recommendation system
    This looks very nice. I like the discussions already attached to the modules, although that should probably be merged with http://cpanforum.com Another type of recommendation system that I've been pondering for the longest time is a way to say "instead...
  • Commented on RFC Module::Build::CleanInstall
    Looks great. If the packlist is not there, no foul done, and if it is, it neatly clean and vacuum the place. I can’t think of a way how this could have adverse consequences, but you are right in requesting...
  • Commented on Yanick Champoux joins Dancer core team
    I can't say how honored, humbled and excited by this... mostly because I can't stop squealing like a whole school bus of little girls on their way to Pony-Land long enough. ^.^ Once the squealing abates a little bit, I'll...
  • Commented on Including Changes information in POD
    Two additional mini-thoughts about the Changes as an additional module/POD: 1) The canonical name could be Foo::Bar::changelog with a lowercase to ensure it doesn't interfere with the regular modules (and, more to the point, a visual distinction). 2) The changelog...
  • Commented on Including Changes information in POD
    I love the idea to have an easy way to get the changelog of a distribution (I think there's an app somewhere that can get it straight from CPAN (or your local darkpan mirror), but to have it really locally...
  • Commented on A distributed design challenge
    Idea based on 5 minutes of thinking about it (so, yeah, go fetch the box o' salt). Since it seems there is going to be a truckload of bids, it might be advantageous to use the law of big numbers...
  • Commented on I love MooseX::Role::Loggable
    Log::Dispatch is wonderful. Log::Dispatchouli is awesome. And now this MooseX::Role::Loggable... it's.. it's... I'm running out of superlatives, darnit. :-) Something tells me there will be a migration of my own modules to that new level of epic niftiness. Thanks for...
  • Commented on YAPC Achievements
    Heh. To my defence, I didn't push it to CPAN because the code is very, very alpha. And stubby. And without documentation. But if there is a demand, and it seems there is, I'll gladly push it this week-end. :-)...
  • Commented on ++ Goes on Hiatus
    Thanks for the pep talk, Yanick. :) My pleasure. I just know how disheartening is it to pour all your heart and soul in a project, and have it spoiled by a jerk for the sheer evulz of it. In...
  • Commented on ++ Goes on Hiatus
    Okay, this sucks. And is reminiscent of the likewise spoil-sportish attack on Dancer on CPAN rating last year. But, anyway: even though the bot and its master(s) are probably currently leaving you a rather bad taste in your mouth and...
  • Commented on The Triumphant Return of Zoidberg -- A Modular Perl Shell
    w00t! Once every few years, I play with the idea of making a Perl shell my main working shell env. The time has come to give it yet another try. :-)...
  • Commented on Dancer release codename "Yanick in Black"
    I'll post a longer reaction to the news once I can articulate something past the insanely wide silly grin that is threatening to split my head in half. But, in the meantime: I am honored, I am thrilled, and most...

  • Commented on Why I don't write in Pascal
    My criteria to program in X or use software Y can pretty much be boiled down to: 1. Is it going to get the job done? 2. How much effort is it going to require to use? 3. How fun...
  • Commented on vim: add a 'use' statement without moving the cursor
    This is awesome. It's going into my vim configuration right now. Thanks for sharing! :-)...
  • Commented on Who has the cool Greasemonkey scripts for Perl sites?
    They should be tagged with 'Perl' and/or 'CPAN', but just in case I forgot: there are my scripts at http://userscripts.org/users/38422/scripts....
  • Commented on search.metacpan.org: Building a Sexier CPAN Search
    > If I can convince you to contribute some code and/or get involved in mapping out how some of this stuff should work, that would be great. :) Twist my arm. :-) I've joined the mailing list and will see...
  • Commented on search.metacpan.org: Building a Sexier CPAN Search
    This is awesome! I'm particularly cheering for the upvote/downvote functionality (I've soliloquized about some very preliminary draft work toward a service that would do that at http://babyl.dyndns.org/techblog/entry/cpanvote-a-perl-mini-project eons ago), but the whole thing is very, very exciting. And I didn't...
  • Commented on Sitemap? Dancer has it!
    > This is also a good time to say "thank you" to you, for all your Perl contributions (your CPAN and Dancer stuff, and definitely your shuck and awe that I love to read) so thanks! :) You, sir, are...
  • Commented on Sitemap? Dancer has it!
    > If you're using Catalyst, this is pretty sweet. Yanick here. Just a quick pip to say thank for the thumb up. :-) For the record, I, ah..., allowed myself to be inspired by Dancer::Plugin::SiteMap to come up with the...
  • Commented on one liner history command counter
    Ooops... Margins are cutting part of the code. $ history | perl -anE'END{say++$i.": $_ ($h{$_})"\ for(sort{$h{$b}$h{$a}}%h)[0..4]}++$h{join$",@F[1..$#F]}'...
  • Commented on one liner history command counter
    For giggles, I've golfed it a wee bit: $ history | perl -anE'END{say++$i.": $_ ($h{$_})"for(sort{$h{$b}$h{$a}}%h)[0..4]}++$h{join$",@F[1..$#F]}'...
  • Commented on Manage multiple MiniCPANs, and version them
    Seems that we had the urge to scratch the same itch: I've recently mashed CPAN::Cache and MyCPAN::App::DPAN with a Catalyst app to do roughly the same thing (http://babyl.dyndns.org/techblog/2010/03/). I'll have to look at your solution and see how much I...
  • Commented on A bash completion helper for perldoc
    "I used this script for mere hours before I realised it’s exactly the one thing I have always missed in Perl [..]" I think I will have that quote framed and installed over my office's desk. That really made my...

  • Buddy Burden commented on Play Perl is a Startup

    Definitely wishing you the best of luck. Running a business can be a huge PITA, and it can be very rewarding. Generally it's both at once. :-)

    When you start adding features, put me down as a +1 for adding GitHub login.

    @thaljef:

    The world is a very big place. If you can conquer just a tiny patch of it, you can live quite comfortably. At least, that's what I tell myself every morning. Follow your dream.

    Nice one, man. I'm totally adding that to my fortune file. ;->

  • Jeffrey Kegler commented on The Design of Four

    The weird sense of irony may be in your browser. I've looked at this post via a couple of browsers and there seems to be no problem.

  • Jeffrey Kegler commented on The Design of Four

    @yanick: Checking these comments, I see the duplication. I think blogs.perl.org may be having difficulties. If you click through to the original at the Ocean of Awareness blog, you can see the post as intended. Thanks!

  • Dave Cross commented on The Design of Four

    I'm sorry, I accidentally caused the repetition. I was trying to cut down the amount of text that appeared on the front page of the site, but somehow got it wrong.

    I've fixed it now. Sorry about that.

  • Ether commented on Introducing Platform

    I think this would be better indicated as metadata, rather than as a placeholder module.
