First attempt: "What I'm Reading." This has been a good conversation jump-start on another mailing list.
I just resumed reading "Programming Pearls" by Jon Bently. (Resumed, as in "got halfway through it some months ago, 'stored' it on a shelf to be picked up in a day or two, which became many days, and suddenly noticed it with a bookmark sticking up.)
Nothing to to with "Programming Perl"; instead, this is a nice review of stuff-you-should-have-learned-in-school, such as how to do back of the envelope estimations, and various techniques for optimizing and improving code. Quite useful. If you never learned about big-Oh notation (as in, "that algorithm is O(n^2)", read "Order N Squared"), this would be a good place to start (or review).
Been a member here for a while, but don't visit that often, and only today discovered the journals. We shall see what good comes of this...
Currently, all my Perl work is database-related. And I have an unfortunate tendency to look for CPAN modules only if I don't have a pre-conceived notion of how it "ought" to be done.
I spend a lot more time driving than I would rather, because the only Perl/Unix work is about 50 miles from my home. Moving is out of the question for the next several years (kids in school, you may know the drill).
