  • Commented on Zotero/Perl integration
    Yeah I want a 100% markdown based solution, so bibtex doesn't do it for me (largely to do with often working with co-authors). Which means pandoc (haskell markdown to various formats round trip parser including pseudopod and docx apparently). Current...
  • Commented on Creating a perl developer survey
    Here you go. Back in 2010 the answer was operating systems ... and best windows distributions. So for the 2013 survey, we should add dwim perl. Any others?...
  • Posted Zotero/Perl integration to Holy Zarquon's Singing Fish

    Zotero is in my opinion the best solution to citation management available. It's a firefox/xulrunner based solution for collecting and maintaining bibliographic data and it's associated full text. Zotero has a cloud based API but also an internal (largely…

  • Commented on Creating a perl developer survey
    Also looking at the reports on the 2010 survey and evaluating what questions worked well, which were incomplete and which could be deleted would also be very useful in refining the instrument. Bear in mind I got the grant to...
  • Commented on Creating a perl developer survey
    Don't reinvent the wheel please. I was planning on running a perl survey in 2013. There have been a few surveys around recently and I wanted there to be a bit of a lull. If you want to help, grab...
  • Commented on Smoke testing on Windows
    Hmm, what happened to the Microsoft CPAN Authors Lab. There was an announcement on use.perl.org (link now dead), and a /. article, and a couple of other things. But other than that, nothing. I have no idea how to get...

    During a recent trip to Sydney I visited the Camelot Lounge. Nothing to do with small children, or arthurian legends, it contains much camel memorabilia. Being a very short train ride (two stops) from the OSDC…

  • Commented on CPAN modules for the Indonesian language
    The big problem with Indonesian as written online is that much of it is done in txt spk with lots and lots of shortcuts. Which makes it a nightmare for me to read (given I don't read formal indonesian very...
  • Commented on How Perl Documentation Could Look Like
    Pandoc is not a format, it's a parser - basically markdown to anything and back - written in Haskell. I guess it's as good as its test data....
  • Commented on Posting Pertama
    Saya juga mau Acme::CPANAuthors::Mengerti::BehasaIndonesia Actually Indonesian/Malay[3], Perl and English have interesting linguistic features in common, as they're all driven by the same pragmatic foundations. Except that while English has a huge sprawling vocabulary, Indonesian uses quite a lot of metaphor,...
  • Commented on Truth about Booking.com
    To be honest it sounds like pretty much any other bureaucratic environment. Getting bureaucracies to move past one size fits all metrics to understand how to make best usage of their resources is a bit of a challenge once they...
  • Commented on How not to use Moose
    On the other hand, I don't see what's wrong with this (aside from the iffy class name and behaviour): package Messiah; use Mo; has $_ => 'is' => 'rw' for qw/foo bar baz/; sub boom { die "aargh"} 1; I...

  • Commented on Expanding Your MetaCPAN Author Profile
    right, that was a good excuse to start using metacpan rather than search cpan.org. What I did was sign on with my PAUSE account, and then update my old bookmark associated with the keyword "cpan" to read: https://metacpan.org/search?q=%s Now in...

  • nandakumarpbster commented on Truth about Booking.com

    Hi Friend.

    I read it today. This happens to me "MANY" times. This is because of the enthusiasm you possessing to learn more. It happened to me even for my last company(Currently I am working Self). What I learned is that , for the life you need money .For that you have to work (Most employers only bothered about the "BUSINESS" not bothered about employee or his interest).If you have enough money resign the job and do work for you (and learn what you want to learn. Now Google is there you can learn any new technology if you are willing to learn).
    Good Luck !

  • andersonwalker729 commented on Truth about Booking.com

    It's not a match up when deals are compared to the advertised ones. Before booking it all appears reasonable, but as you proceed to payment directly it goes upward. The difficulty is that once you put in added expenses and duty, the prices are generally about the equal if not worse than the direct booking on hotel websites. You’d better try www.theholidayhotels.com

  • sheila.tanner35 commented on Truth about Booking.com

    I'm currently working on my CV, portfolio, and motivation letter so I can apply to Booking.com for the UX Designer position. I'm ok with the company having a bureaucratic environment; I survived nearly 13 years in the US military. If we could have fit in any more bureaucracy there, we would have made great honorary Volgons (H2G2 reference). Not to mention, the pay can't be any worse than my current pay for the same job. I always hear about how freelance work gives you more freedom, but in my experience working as part of a team is more conducive to an atmosphere of freedom. If hired,…
