  • Commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks
    @SawyerX I'd like to get a few glasses of your favorite beverage just to thank for Dancer which I seriously love. We can also talk about this topic. But, now that I explained myself one more time, I am going...
  • Commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks
    First, let me please emphasize the following: I don't think that cartoon should have been posted, I think it was right to point out it was inappropriate, and I fully support any effort towards making on-line and face-to-face interactions among...
  • Posted Crypt-SSLeay 0.60 to Sinan Unur

    I just uploaded to Crypt-SSLeay 0.60 to PAUSE to address RT #77167 and CPAN testers failures with the previously released version. The former was due to the fact that SSL v2 is…

  • Commented on How do you update your system Perl?
    Use ArchLinux on my laptop and on my Linode. I let pacman manage and update my system perl as it sees fit. In addition, I have added a few optional packages such as CGI::Simple via pacman. Otherwise, I keep my...
  • Commented on Automating On Call Jury Instructions
    More ranting: The best part is the following gem in the source: <a href="http://bobby.watchfire.com/" title="Bobby's Home Page"></a> JavaScript required and Bobby (via Archive.org)!...
  • Commented on Automating On Call Jury Instructions
    The following is a rant: Here's the thing that really, really bugs me: Somewhere there is some government IT guy sitting, building retirement funds putting together web pages like this. Looking at the page, I see: <noscript> Javascript is disabled....
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    Regardless of the actions of the author, I feel you could have a chosen a different way of advertising the behavior than polluting a whole bunch of feeds with really inappropriate language. Make no mistake, I do not condone any...
  • Commented on Should I buy that Perl book?
    I love when you combine your economic insight with your experience as a programmer and perspective as an author. I am just going to blab a little below because I like the topic so much. Hope you don't mind. ---...
  • Commented on Alien::Base is almost ready
    Well, I have been pondering if I should put together Alien::OpenSSL and it looks like your work will make that much simpler. So, I’ll definitely try it....
  • Commented on Perl101: finding words in words
    This is somewhat related to an interesting problem from Stackoverflow which I blogged about. Do you have any suggestions for that problem?...
  • Commented on Next steps for Crypt-SSLeay
    @Ovid Well, that helps me a lot given how much I stutter when I try to pronounce Crypt-SSLeay. Or, does it? ;-)...
  • Posted Next steps for Crypt-SSLeay to Sinan Unur

    My primary goal for the 0.58 release was to understand and fix as much as I could without breaking anything. Occasionally, that meant leaving certain blocks of code in place in Makefile.PL even when I was not too sure it was necessary to do so. I did try to…

  • Posted Crypt-SSLeay 0.58 to Sinan Unur

    Earlier today, I uploaded Crypt-SSLeay to CPAN with much trepidation.

    I am hoping that the module is in no worse shape today than when I joined the project as a…

  • Commented on Please test Crypt::SSLeay
    Thank you brian. It is a privilege to be able to contribute what little I can. In addition to people testing Makefile.PL with uncommon library locations. See http://blog.nu42.com/2010/08/how-does-bug-survive-for-very-long-time.html for an example of how things can go wrong even though tests...

    This makes for a very interesting comparison. I had never heard of WWW::Scripter, so now I have something new to look at. Well done sir!

      dpkg, dpkg-*

      The dpkg tools are low-level package tools that AFAIK work only on single packages that you have on hand. These are the tools used to build packages from a source tree into a .deb file, then install that .deb file. Or to install downloaded .deb files (like dropbox_1.4.0_amd64.deb) that come from outside of the Debian repositories. Not recommended for normal use.

      apt-get, apt-etc

      The apt tools are the standard-ish tools for installing packages. Apt incorporates the Debian (or other) repositories a…

  • Nei commented on How do you update your system Perl?

    the perl package in openSUSE is named "perl". It is installed by default. perl-doc is suggested by perl and can be installed separately. You can check version using the package manager, or you can check the package website. security updates are provided via patches. HTH

  • Sawyer X commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks

    I can speak volumes about this topic (and perhaps next time we'll be at the same conference, we should), but meanwhile I'll simply say: you were right about what Schwern did (most of it, at least) but he was right about it. The fact that you have an open mind (happy to hear you do!) doesn't mean you don't alienate others or necessarily notice it. My mother tongue isn't English either. Does that mean I don't alienate others, such as women? Hmm... no, it doesn't. I'm sorry this hurt your feelings, but that's simply how the world works sometimes. We don't always notice damage we do, and…

  • Sawyer X commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks

    I hope we could meet at the next YAPC and I could buy you a drink as well for your contributions to Perl (and to YAPCs!) next time. :)
