Maybe I'm missing something, but how do I receive notifications on comments posted to this journal's entries (or to my comments) by email? RSS/Atom will also be nice.
There is such a feature in Live Journal and on O'Reilly Net and it's very convenient. I guess I could hack something using WWW::Mechanize, but I'd rather avoid it.
On a different note, check this LJ entry for a discussion of the Tower of Babel Myth, which was written by inspiration from a discussion on Freenode's #perl. (With merlyn, and others).
