  • Commented on Picking a better Markdown library for bad input
    I switched to using Pandoc for all my Markdonw processing. Haven't seen a problem yet....
  • Commented on 1000th consecutive days releasing to CPAN
    Larry, I don't think that Mohammed has released 1,000 modules to CPAN. Some of these his releases will be new versions of existing modules. There are currently 96 modules listed for Mohammed's CPAN account....
  • Commented on 1000th consecutive days releasing to CPAN
    This is awesome news. Congratulations and well done....
  • Commented on Introduce Perl tutorial site which write by google engineer
    Some problems I found in the first few paragraphs. Perl stands in for "Practical Extraction and Reporting Language" No. It doesn't. From the list of pros: Used in Web development for mostly Payment Gateways. What? From the list of cons:...
  • Commented on Introduce Perl tutorial site which write by google engineer
    This is a terrible tutorial. Please don't promote it....
  • Commented on 20 Years of Perl mongers
    London.pm was a little later. Our mailing list got going in something like May 1998 and we had our first meeting on 6th August in the same year. We made a big thing of our tenth anniversary in 2008. We...
  • Commented on Something New Every Day
    I think you meant to write: I discovered that “$package'varname” is apparently an alias of “$package::varname” It's a little-known corner of Perl history. But it can be used for CPAN jokes....
  • Commented on Perl Developer Survey 2017
    I think it might be a good idea to explain why you ask (optionally) for an email address on the first screen. Also, I found it hard to answer the "which version of Perl" question as I use different versions...
  • Commented on Turkish speaker needed
    I've taken the liberty of turning your link into a clickable one. Best to make it as easy as possible for people :-)...
  • Commented on backseat YAPC::EU
    That sounds like a great way to enjoy a conference. I keep promising myself that I'll attend a Perl conference without giving ay talks. But it never seems to work out like that. One day......
  • Commented on You Wouldn't BELIEVE what I saw at YAPC::EU!!!
    I'm pretty sure I've only ever shown the "Perl Vogue" cover during the original lightning talk in Pisa and now in Cluj. I don't think I even did that talk again at that year's LPW. I know I tend to...
  • Commented on A pumpking is born
    Many congratulations. I think you're an excellent choice for the role....

  • Commented on Perl 6 grammars redux
    I know that the software behind blogs.perl.org isn't particularly good, but it does support clickable links, you know :-) http://theperlfisher.blogspot.ro...
  • Commented on Re: Perl Oneliner help
    This probably isn't the best place to ask for help with specific questions like this. I'd recommend that you ask your question on StackOverflow or Perl Monks....
  • Commented on Nominate Perl heroes for the 2015 White Camel Awards
    The White Camel Awards are given out by The Perl Foundation. A side effect of this is that people who are currently in TPF posts are excluded from nomination. I'm sure that Mark will be a dead cert for a...
  • Commented on Dave Cross and Modern PERL
    @shawnhcorey: I'm pretty sure that Ovid knows that POSIX is a standard module :-)...
  • Commented on Please blog about YAPC::EU!
    Done....
  • Commented on blogs.perl.org... Perl's Death by 1,000 Cuts
    Ok. Why don't you do that. Let me know when you want a dump of the current data so that you can migrate it all into Wordpress....
  • Commented on On Dave Mitchell calling B and B::C a failed experiment
    Reini, your opening line here is factually incorrect, in that you are not currently banned from from p5p. Your recent one-month ban expired on 23 October 2014: http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2014/09/msg220361.html Beyond that, the BPO admins want to stress that we do not...
  • Commented on Hacked Again?
    No, that's the dump from the previous hack. Your monitoring service has been worrying you unnecessarily....
  • Commented on The Silver Camel goes to ... Mark Keating
    He's chair of TPF's marketing committee too. And that, as I understand it, is why he's currently not being considered for a White Camel. To avoid any possible conflicts of interest TPF don't give White Camels to people who are...
  • Commented on Stop Putting AUTO_INCREMENT IDs in URLs
    The default permalink format for Wordpress is broken in exactly this way: http://example.com/?p=N First thing I do when configuring a new site is to change it to one of the other alternatives: http://example.com/2012/12/30/post-name...
  • Commented on Spam on CPAN
    It's not spam, and nothing is faked. It's appears to be a rather ham-fisted attempt to reserve a top-level namespace....
  • Commented on Entering MooseX, XXII Just two more
    I think you mean brian d foy :-)...
  • Commented on search.cpan.org
    Last year I wrote about some ways to make it easier to use MetaCPAN....
  • Commented on Some ideas for improving the community - The ANA initiative
    Then major resources (perl.com, perl.org, jobs.perl.org, metacpan, etc...) need to be visually re-designed Leo Lapworth has been working his way through the Perl web sites - massively improving the look of the ones that he has worked on. From your...
  • Commented on blogs.perl.org statistics
    Yeah, we seem to bubble along at a reasonable level with an occasional massive spike like that. The spikes all seem to be driven by posts getting onto Reddit and/or Hacker News. And mostly they seem to be Ovid's posts...
  • Commented on The 2013 White Camels
    But Wendy, these awards are nothing to do with the amount of Perl you do. They are about the amount of good you do in the Perl community. And I can't think of more deserving winners than you and Liz....
  • Commented on Is it possible to run Movable Type under Apache HTTP Server?
    The fact that CGI refuses to die until this day indicates that there are use cases or scenarios in which CGI is more apt than the alternatives. Or does it indicate that people haven't done a good enough job in...

    Dave Cross

    Thanks for comments.

    I don't promote this site. I only introduce this site.

    Maybe, I will introduce the entry which is written by Perl newbie.
    Quality is not problem. Internet have mixed good and bad sites.

    I only introduce the new content about Perl tutorial.

    If you have your favorite Perl tutorial site, I can introduce the site.
    If you feel injustice, I introduce your most recommended site.

    I feel it is not good and it is very old style.

    > I also got a spam message from them. I actually get one of those quite often. From 99guru and a few other "brand new Perl tutorial sites".

    I think it is good to increase Perl site.
    Most bad things is looking down, ignore, negative campaign to Perl.

    Low level content is not so bad. I'm glad to see new Perl content.
