  • Website: enetdown.org/
  • About: I do biomedical engineering research and Perl helps me get things done fast. :-)
  • Commented on So I Guess I'm Back
    Yay! Glad to see you around again!...
  • Commented on Web Development
    I'd love to hear more about this. I have taught young kids computer science concepts before, but not with Perl....
  • Commented on A GUI for CPAN::Mini
    I love this! Where is the source so I can try it? :-) Oh, in case you're interested, there was some discussion about making a web-driven installer work with MetaCPAN. I'm sure this would be possible with the installation of...
  • Commented on Let's top git.io
    Kent, looks like you didn't make it this month. The follower cutoff got bumped up to 296. I agree that fixing the follower limitation is a better approach. Or even creating a reputation-like measure (people that contribute more count more?)...
  • Commented on Having fun with Perl and PDL: predicting github contribution calendar, GitInsight
    Very cool! PDL should really be used more in the Perl community. It's a breath of fresh air coming from MATLAB for scientific computing....
  • Commented on map/grep is not a real iterator?
    Good question! You might not want to use a map when you have a void context for reasons of clarity. See this SO question. Also, Perl 5 doesn't have lazy lists unless you use an iterator and there are several...
  • Commented on 1-line Endianness Detection in the C Preprocessor
    Using pack/unpack is a bit verbose for my tastes, so I would rather use the byteorder information from the Config module. use Config; my $is_little_endian = $Config{byteorder} eq '12345678';...
  • Commented on Debian, MariaDB, Perl and DBD::mysql
    Should the line my($chateau) = 'Chteau'; be my($chateau) = 'Château'; ?...
  • Commented on Learning project 2: What's different
    OK, this gives a bit more information on what you’re working towards. :-) Regarding content, have you seen this talk by Danny Hillis about the Learning Map? It seems complementary to this....
  • Commented on Learning project: introduction
    You might want to look at item response theory. I found this blog post gives a nice introduction. Also, you may be able to adapt or get inspiration from the LON-CAPA system. It’s written in Perl. I don’t really know...
  • Commented on PDL 2.007 Released!
    I use MATLAB for research too. I’d like to use more PDL, but there aren’t enough tools in PDL to make prototyping biomedical image analysis quick and easy enough yet. I plan on fixing this, but it all comes down...
  • Commented on Do your piece to fix TIOBE or stop talking about it
    I'm curious if we can use the <abbr> tag or title attribute to tag the word Perl with "Perl programming language" and still have it be indexed. That way we can use Perl and still have the text flow naturally....
  • Commented on Before you use a rainbow color map, read...
    Interesting read, thanks for sharing. The “Rainbow Color Map (Still) Considered Harmful” paper notes that many visualisation tools still use it as the default which is probably a major reason it is still widely used....
  • Commented on Zotero/Perl integration
    Regarding using Pandoc Markdown + BibTeX for papers, have you seen Jakob Voss' makedoc?...
  • Commented on Shell access to $NOT_MY_ENVIRONMENT for development?
    If you want to have something that you can use remotely, a friend of mine pointed me towards CloudShare and Windows Azure. You can also see if any of the Windows VPSs at LowEndBox work for you....
  • Posted Local hackathons (and how Perl can help) to zaki

    Hi everyone, this is my first blog post on here (Gabor Szabo++ for reminding me Last week, I posted to the Houston.pm group inviting them to come out to the local ="http://houstonh…
