• About: Code requires [some order of magnitude] higher cleverness to read than to write, so if you are writing code at maximum cleverness, then you have already excluded yourself from being clever enough to understand it.

    Over a year ago I was tasked with creating a data warehouse for sports data. Having known absolutely nothing about data warehousing/ETL, my first sport ended up quite the mess; scrapers would extract and transform at the same time then stuff it into a database where it most likely needed…

  • Posted Assigning a user defined function at runtime to ugexe

    I recently wrote my first XS module, and found myself wanting to dynamically load it in the parent module if possible. The next problem was what if the user wants to change back to the pure Perl version? And then, what if the user wants to use Other::Module's similar_function?

    Rocky, you complain about false negatives and that you cannot remove them from the database. However i find myself hopelessly confused that you ignore the ability to cut a new release, or make your module detect a tester and just give back any kind of result you want. I've as a tester personally had to deal with modules that went "Oh, this is windows, my module works, but i don't know how to test on windows, so i'll issue myself a PASS here no matter what."

    If you say that you're the one with not enough power here, then you're not being nearly creative enough.

    ugexe, yes this is what i do =)

    I'm sure that in the modern world evey site should use https, so lets make a bit better place — it is easy =)

  • brian d foy commented on and https

    HTTPS would be nice. You can request features through GitHub issues for blogs-perl-org/, and I've made this issue #254. I just a regular user though.

  • Jeffrey Ryan Thalhammer commented on and https

    I've got a wildcard cert of my own, and I thought of setting up an HTTPS proxy to But I'm not sure if that is ethical or prudent.
