  • Commented on Why Companies Turn Me Down For Contracts
    Money is a huge taboo subject. Break the ice and talk to your friends about it :) I am exceedingly curious what you meant by this last line. If the answer needs to be tailored and is not fit for...
  • Commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends
    @Nate Glenn Pumpkin Perl is a (somewhat stalled) attempt to diversify the Perl release line (i.e. have more than the current one). More info here: http://shadow.cat/blog/matt-s-trout/pumpkin-perl-breakdown/...
  • Commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends
    @mirod There are couple of things at work here. First you have the unsolved https://github.com/gittip/www.gittip.com/issues/970. As a workaround you can paginate our community yourself: https://www.gittip.com/for/perl/?limit=100 https://www.gittip.com/for/perl/?limit=100&offset=50 https://www.gittip.com/for/perl/?limit=100&offset=149 etc... But more importantly - one does not need to be a part...
  • Commented on fatal warnings are a ticking time bomb (via chromatic)
    Thanks! Bug filed: https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=93023...
  • Commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends
    Ah... the recurring budget thing made me believe it is a little bit like Gittip. Now that you explain it - yes, completely different ballgame. Thanks for clarifying....
  • Commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends
    [comment update]: Apparently I was totally wrong regarding the next paragraph (strike-through does not seem to work in comments, sadpanda). The site is fully PayPalled, the "american-centric" criticism doesn't hold much water at this point. Indeed when you are unamerican...
  • Posted I bought a weekly round for my friends to Ribasushi's civility-free zone

    Given our community is a little... let's say cautious I feel the need to open with a disclaimer. I am in no way affiliated with Gittip, in the past, present and the foreseeable future. In fact I looked at their

  • Commented on fatal warnings are a ticking time bomb (via chromatic)
    And another followup after I've had my proper amount of coffee: combining the late-night posting with the highly unusual "fire and replace yourself" implementation that Damien used, led me to misread his code altogether to look like global redifinition. Thus...
  • Commented on fatal warnings are a ticking time bomb (via chromatic)
    Another followup now that I examined the source of Moo::Lax. It in fact already sort-of does what I propose above, but does it in a very nasty silent way, without documenting it, and without checking whether strictures have already been...
  • Commented on fatal warnings are a ticking time bomb (via chromatic)
    chromatic, I agree with you 100%, case in point: https://github.com/dbsrgits/dbix-class/commit/59d624cf78 There is also an ugly conflict coming down the pipes this year when I will have to merge Matt's amazing work on Data::Query into DBIx::Class stable, one of the blockers...

  • Commented on New feature: automatic post truncation
    I understand that there are "two right answers" in this case, so do what you think it's best. Just one last idea for the problem of "900-100" split - simply add a rule of at least 40%/60% split if body...
  • Commented on New feature: automatic post truncation
    Would it not be more sensible to honor a split provided by the author, and only fall back to autosplitting if the "extended" section is empty?...
  • Commented on Crowdsourcing self-confidence
    @xdg If I was planning to keep doing this on volunteer-basis only, then yes, your comment makes much sense. However (as hinted in the post) I am toying with the idea of formalizing my work on DBIC as something that...

  • Commented on New feature: automatic post truncation
    Bugreport: I published a post just now, and I used the abstract/body split myself. The site did not honor my formatting, even though the abstract was no longer than the announcement in Aristotle's post. Cheers...
  • Commented on Let's try this again
    I am angry about many things. In fact too many things if seen from the PoV of an average person. Yet this has nothing, repeat nothing, to do with how passionate I am about Perl (don't ask me, ask around...
  • Commented on Pre-Modern Perl VS Post-Modern Perl: FIGHT!
    Every single proponent of high-fructose-perl seems to be united under the banner "Perl Must EVOLVE!". I just want to remind folks that evolution is not always a good thing - care must be exercised *what* one is evolving into. Platypus-perl...
  • Commented on Notes from a Newbie 20: YAPC::NA 2013 Austin
    Hi j0e, You said it yourself - it is a matter of perspective. I can't speak for other "non-newbies", but for me your talk is interesting specifically because it will not tell me anything new in a technical sense. It...
  • Posted PerlX, sub-communities, etc. to Ribasushi's civility-free zone

    TL;DR: I just finished and gisted a transcript of a Russian Perl podcast discussing Perl's future, and many other things. I made it with the strong belief it will be very beneficial to have access to yet another point…

    He doesn't owe the community to sit and sift through an unknown number of modules to find which problem exists in which version of which modules causing what side-effect every time he works on a project, even if that project...
  • Commented on Using Stratopan To Build ... Stratopan
    Jeff, your behavior is outrageous. Figuring out which module (or combination of modules) had caused the problem could take hours. I had absolutely no desire to go down that rat hole. Stratopan, while not a service for the community, is...
  • Commented on Notes from a Newbie 16: Deploy
    Also another note on your comment but I am no Peter Rabitson higher up. Newsflash - Peter Rabbitson wasn't always Peter Rabbitson either. Almost exactly 6 years ago I came to Catalyst (DBIC came later) just like you did. I...
  • Commented on Notes from a Newbie 16: Deploy

    Definitely optional, but also sometimes bordering on free ;) Next post does in fact shape up to be a bovine massacre. Stay tuned!...
  • Commented on On the awesomeness of the Perl community
    Errr... Are you saying that if I disagree with chromatic and petdance it *automatically* makes me an asshole? :) All "civility free zone" means is that I reserve the right to call things as they are, with pleasantness taking a...
  • Posted On the awesomeness of the Perl community to Ribasushi's civility-free zone

    The Perl community is AWESOME! Much has been said and written on this topic: a lot of it true, some of it not so much, and sadly a nontrivial amount of it FUD. Yet, since this is about Perl, there is definitely more than one way to say it. So I will tell you one more personal-ish…

    Last time I tried to use Paypal to receive money outside the US it was a bit of a nightmare to get set up, though admittedly that was many a year ago.

  • Aristotle commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends

    As far as Flattr is concerned - I do not like its "american-centric" everyone-participating-gets-an-equal-prize idea.

    It was made for a completely different use case than yours – it only does one-time donations, not recurring ones. It’s for buskers on the Internet basically. You enjoy an article/song/clip/etc. enough to think it’s worth a tip, you throw some pocket change into the Flattr hat in front of it. The point of the fixed budget divided between everyone is so that you never have to hesitate from paying for some thing you enjoyed, because you nev…

  • mirod commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends

    I like the gittip model. There are plenty of people in the Perl community whose work has helped me tremendously in the last 15 years. It's nice to be able to give back to them.

    Now what I can't seem to find is a way to list the people in the community, so I can choose who to give to. At the moment I can only see the new subscribers, top receivers and top donors. I can't get a list of the other members. Am I missing something?

  • Ether commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends

    Thank you to the people who donated to me, I am very flattered!

    Now I am wondering when gittip is ever going to send me a notification about this.. I haven't received a single email saying "hey you have funds waiting; what do you want to do about that?" ...so if I never went back to the site myself, I'd never see that there are funds accumulating.

  • Nate Glenn commented on I bought a weekly round for my friends

    I know what the Pumpking is. What is Pumpkin Perl? Is it just Blead Perl? Or is it any release of Perl?
