- Posted HTML::Scrubber 0.09 release to Nigel Metheringham
Commented on HTML::Scrubber maintainership
Thanks for the heads up. I have picked up HTML::Scrubber maintenance as leaving a package with a known security issue live on CPAN seemed icky. However since HTML::Restrict is a very close (although slightly more limited) relation, I may see...
Posted HTML::Scrubber maintainership to Nigel Metheringham
HTML::Scrubber appears unmaintained at present, and I cannot find a way to contact the author (podmaster) - email bounces and I cannot see any activity later than 2006.
If you know a means to contact podmaster aka…
Posted DBIC Deployment Handler to Nigel Metheringham
I think, after a load of floundering around, that the way to use DBIx::Class::DeploymentHandler has finally clicked - I have no idea why it seems to have been so hard for my mind to work out how to use it, but…

Posted Picking up HTML::Formatter maintenance to Nigel Metheringham
I've volunteered to pick up maintenance of the HTML-Format module, which has been lacking love recently (last update 2004).
Initial intention is to do maintenance on it - its currently causing warnings about UNIVERSAL::Can on recent ve…
Posted Not A Post to Nigel Metheringham
This is not a perl blog post... Unfortunately I have not posted for a good while, and theres going to be a further gap before I start again properly.
So, following a week of holiday, a week on an intensive training course, a week running a theatre show and two weeks organising things for …
Posted Server Deployment Packaging (2) to Nigel Metheringham
Last week I posted about my current experiments in deploying perl applications to our Centos 5 servers - or rather the first steps of building a perl package along with the required modules.
I am just starting…
Posted Server Deployment Packaging to Nigel Metheringham
We tend to use Centos 5 on server systems.
Posted A few of my favourite things.... Set::Object to Nigel Metheringham
One module I discovered a few years ago, and seem to end up using for many things, is Set::Object by Sam Vilain.
Posted So who knew... to Nigel Metheringham
I'm currently working with extracting data from a system with an XML based command UI, so I am fairly often dumping serialised (using Data::Dump) perl objects out whilst debugging.

Posted Adventures with Dist::Zilla - 3 - Can't Get No Satisfaction to Nigel Metheringham
I am still slowly working my way through Dist::Zilla attempting to get the config that works for me...
I suspect that the plethora of PluginBundles::personid are down to it being very hard to slightly modify a config other than by writing it out in full or by nasty filtering gymna…
Posted Useful side effects of the perl testing culture to Nigel Metheringham
I am currently in the middle of trying a new mechanism to deploy perl applications (several which are catalyst based) on servers at work while attempting to keep the level of supporting system (ie perl and the required modules) maintenance work to a minimum whilst being able to use modern perl -…
Posted Adventures with Dist::Zilla - 2 - Weaving The Pods to Nigel Metheringham
I've been spending a bit of time this week looking at Pod enhancements for Dist::Zilla released modules, I have hit a bit of an impasse.
Posted Adventures with Dist::Zilla - 1 to Nigel Metheringham
I don't have the huge range of CPAN modules that some people are herding, so it may be thought that I don't need the substantial set of automation that others require to keep their interactions with PAUSE/CPAN under control.
However since I have to interact with PAUSE fairly rarely, as wel…
Posted First post...! to Nigel Metheringham
I was never much of a prolific blogger - and since I was out of action nearly a year back for an extended period, I have not managed to resume at all...
So I'm aiming to do a little perl blogging here, as opposed to on my other (mostly abandoned) blog. Hopefully this should manage to keep…
