  • Commented on Moose should of stayed in bed
    "Should have" (which abbreviates to "should've", not "should of") :-)...
  • Commented on Modern Perl CGI
    I think that an even easier way to deploy code in a CGI environment is to just change the shebang line to #!/usr/bin/plackup No need to add the Plack::Handler code....
  • Commented on Modern Perl CGI
    The CGI.pm version will only work on "basically any server" until "basically any server" stops coming with Perls older than 5.20 It's worse than that. RHEL/Centos 6 and 7 (which are both currently mainstream in the low-cost web hosting industry)...
  • Commented on Progress of blogs.perl.org grant
    Yes. The current implementation is using a long-unsupported version of Movable Type, with no upgrade path available to us. The site has a number of problems (some annoying and some critical) that we have been unable to fix. This is...
  • Commented on My First Perl Conference
    I went to see Regexp Mini Tutorial: Assertions, but unfortunately I got lost in the technical stuff pretty early on because I'm not very good. I will have to go through the slides/video when it becomes available and quiz Barbie....
  • Commented on The Perl Conference in Glasgow - Report
    Let's be clear here. I didn't say I expect your patches would be "good enough", I said I *knew* they would be good :-)...
  • Commented on StackOverflow that!
    But Perl Monks just looks really ugly. And they store passwords in plain text!...
  • Commented on Picking a better Markdown library for bad input
    I switched to using Pandoc for all my Markdonw processing. Haven't seen a problem yet....
  • Commented on 1000th consecutive days releasing to CPAN
    Larry, I don't think that Mohammed has released 1,000 modules to CPAN. Some of these his releases will be new versions of existing modules. There are currently 96 modules listed for Mohammed's CPAN account....
  • Commented on 1000th consecutive days releasing to CPAN
    This is awesome news. Congratulations and well done....
  • Commented on Introduce Perl tutorial site which write by google engineer
    Some problems I found in the first few paragraphs. Perl stands in for "Practical Extraction and Reporting Language" No. It doesn't. From the list of pros: Used in Web development for mostly Payment Gateways. What? From the list of cons:...
  • Commented on Introduce Perl tutorial site which write by google engineer
    This is a terrible tutorial. Please don't promote it....
  • Commented on 20 Years of Perl mongers
    London.pm was a little later. Our mailing list got going in something like May 1998 and we had our first meeting on 6th August in the same year. We made a big thing of our tenth anniversary in 2008. We...
  • Commented on Something New Every Day
    I think you meant to write: I discovered that “$package'varname” is apparently an alias of “$package::varname” It's a little-known corner of Perl history. But it can be used for CPAN jokes....
  • Commented on Perl Developer Survey 2017
    I think it might be a good idea to explain why you ask (optionally) for an email address on the first screen. Also, I found it hard to answer the "which version of Perl" question as I use different versions...
  • Commented on Turkish speaker needed
    I've taken the liberty of turning your link into a clickable one. Best to make it as easy as possible for people :-)...
  • Commented on backseat YAPC::EU
    That sounds like a great way to enjoy a conference. I keep promising myself that I'll attend a Perl conference without giving ay talks. But it never seems to work out like that. One day......
  • Commented on You Wouldn't BELIEVE what I saw at YAPC::EU!!!
    I'm pretty sure I've only ever shown the "Perl Vogue" cover during the original lightning talk in Pisa and now in Cluj. I don't think I even did that talk again at that year's LPW. I know I tend to...

    Many congratulations. I think you're an excellent choice for the role....

    I know that the software behind blogs.perl.org isn't particularly good, but it does support clickable links, you know :-) http://theperlfisher.blogspot.ro...
  • Commented on Re: Perl Oneliner help
    This probably isn't the best place to ask for help with specific questions like this. I'd recommend that you ask your question on StackOverflow or Perl Monks....
  • Commented on Nominate Perl heroes for the 2015 White Camel Awards
    The White Camel Awards are given out by The Perl Foundation. A side effect of this is that people who are currently in TPF posts are excluded from nomination. I'm sure that Mark will be a dead cert for a...

  • Commented on blogs.perl.org... Perl's Death by 1,000 Cuts
    Ok. Why don't you do that. Let me know when you want a dump of the current data so that you can migrate it all into Wordpress....
  • Commented on On Dave Mitchell calling B and B::C a failed experiment
    Reini, your opening line here is factually incorrect, in that you are not currently banned from from p5p. Your recent one-month ban expired on 23 October 2014: http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2014/09/msg220361.html Beyond that, the BPO admins want to stress that we do not...
  • Commented on Hacked Again?
    No, that's the dump from the previous hack. Your monitoring service has been worrying you unnecessarily....
  • Commented on The Silver Camel goes to ... Mark Keating
    He's chair of TPF's marketing committee too. And that, as I understand it, is why he's currently not being considered for a White Camel. To avoid any possible conflicts of interest TPF don't give White Camels to people who are...
  • Commented on Stop Putting AUTO_INCREMENT IDs in URLs
    The default permalink format for Wordpress is broken in exactly this way: http://example.com/?p=N First thing I do when configuring a new site is to change it to one of the other alternatives: http://example.com/2012/12/30/post-name...

  • Abigail commented on My First Perl Conference

    Some of us actually care about their privacy. I rather not have any images (moving or still) of me floating around on the internet.

  • Wendy commented on My First Perl Conference

    I didn't write my reaction to provoke a thanks by you. Just wanted to let you know that I saw you, like who you are, hugged you, and did not notice you needed more hugs, and maybe needed some more introductions to the people I know well, but you had Barbie doing that already. Butch as hell, just like me, and still soft inside. :-)

  • Sam commented on My First Perl Conference

    That's absolutely fair enough and I respect your preference, Abigail.

  • Sam commented on My First Perl Conference

    Oh I know that Wendy, but you were extremely kind and ludicrously generous and you need thanking. So... THANKS!

    And yes, we have to let good old Barbie still feel useful... :P

  • Aristotle commented on Modern Perl CGI

    Dave, that won’t work exactly as written because plackup is a script, and you can only use binaries in the shebang. You would have to use

    #!/usr/bin/env plackup

    But I recommend against this. Going through plackup via the shebang line means means that every request requires loading Plack::Runner and then Plack::Loader only to ultimately pass the app to Plack::Handler::CGI… same as you can just do directly. But it doesn’t allow you to deploy an unmodified PSGI app as a CGI script, so you gain nothing more than a little bit of syn…
