    Also, Please remind me not to waste time with the edit process of commenting on blogs.perl.org to write a decent comment.

  • Neil Bowers commented on Give your module a good SEE ALSO section

    Bit of wishful thinking there @ether? Got some nasty bugs you're hoping someone else will fix for you? ;-)
