Commented on XS, Advanced XS Callback Patch For OCI, Part IV Finally Some Code but no Perl and just a little XS
A feature request for XSFun - would you consider advanced topics concerning things like memory management in the future? I had a problem I dropped a while back about removing a node from a Boost::Graph object because the size of...
Commented on eBooks ... for Science!
There's work going on at the LaTeXML mailing list on a TeX to ePub proof of concept being tested on github There's a new blog post with snazzy images of gorgeous maths that blows mine out of the water....

Posted Porting Tests to Perl 6 to enkidu
Just reading Brent Laabs post on Porting a Module to Perl 6 and two things occurred to me. The first was that I should start getting into Perl 6 sooner rather than later and get the few modules I'm involved with…
Posted Finally turning on to DBIx::Class to enkidu
It's a snow day and time to play. I have a cow orker who prefers to write all the business logic in SQL because he hasn't moved on from what he learnt in the 80's. Nice guy, but I suspect he has a hearing deficiency because he never listens to what I have to say (or he's got a nasty case of…

Commented on A quick static file webserver
