Mark Fowler has never been the same since he was elected leader of the London Perl Mongers. The strain manifests itself mainly in releasing various [cpan.org] modules [cpan.org] to CPAN, giving talks [2shortplanks.com], and use of the Trelane nick on #london.pm for endless procrastination. Doctors are still seeking a cure.

I think computers hate me.

I think computers hate me.

I've been spending an inordinately long time trying to get a ssl version of the subversion client to install on my mac. Not at all helped by Fink not wanting to cvsupdate (it tries to use 13GB of main memory and malloc chokes - nice).

For the last two days I've been classifying all mail I get that contains S, P, A, or M in the subject in my inbox as spam by writing this in my mail filter by mistake:

  if ($subject =~ /[SPAM]/)

More fun with regex: I can't work out why I can't include a $ in a string based regex I pass to Test::Builder's 'maybe_regex'. Bah I say. Bah!

I've found a problem with Sub::Attempts, where I've been bitten by the bug in perl that doesn't allow you to declare methods in another package from your current package and expect to have SUPER work correctly. I'm going to have to fix that with a nasty hack with string eval. Ugh! New release sometime this weekend, if I have time.

Bah bah bah.
