  • Posted A very simple LRU cache with Tie::IxHash to TNish

    Recently, I needed to add a simple cache to my application. There's great cache modules on CPAN that do this, but I needed to accomplish it with only standard modules.

  • Commented on Crowd funding Pinto
    Perhaps Stratopan should be mentioned in the campaign title? Being able to specify module ranges in Pinto sounds like a fine feature, but I (average perl coder) didn't know that Stratopan and Pinto were related until I read the description,...
  • Commented on On CPAN Namespaces: Urban Namespace Planning
    If I’ve got ODE’s to solve, my primary concern is getting an ODE solver, and the underlying numerical library is a secondary worry. This is doubly true if I don’t have to worry about installation of the numlibs (yay Alien!)....

    So, could you please correct the crowdtilt and make it clear that its for stratopan? Or correct your blog post what is the crowdtilt about, I just get confused, and everyone else, too... Schwern really believes that those 4096$ go purly into opensource stuff, but if it is used to startup the stratopan beta as a paid service, then i dont feel like you are promoting it right.

    It's not for Stratopan. It's for Pinto. Everyone will benefit from this and Jeff's work is for open source. The result will end up on CPAN. I've already said that in a previous comment.
