Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Quoth the Ovid: Evermore

[ #37077 ]

Today is clearly my day for dealing with quoting hell. I was trying to find all new files which weren't man pages, but I wanted to strip that leading '?':

svn status|grep -v man3|awk "/^\?/ {print $2}"

My brain just wouldn't let me see those double quotes. Given that today was my day to struggle with quoting issues, it seems appropriate.
