Book's done

[ #4525 ]
I feel empty now the big interesting project has gone anyway. Now I need another one.

Hack on Perl/OSX foo? Learn British Sign Language? Get to first dan? Well, they all have to be done, I guess.

  • Seems the BSL course doesn't start until September, so that's out for now.
  • I put together a plugin for efficiently filtering large quantities of mail in batches, but it's not releasable with the memory leak [cpan.org] in Mail::Audit. (For my own use, I just shut off the reference to $self.)

    • Two comments: First, I'm not actively supporting old modules. In the case of Mail::Audit, Meng Wong is looking after that these days. I like this way of dealing with software - if it's decent, someone from the userbase will rise up to maintain it. If it's not, it'll die on the vine. Software evolution! So, uh, talk to Meng Wong.

      Second, you could try the CVS version: cvs -d :pserver:cvs@squash.oucs.ox.ac.uk/var/cvs login and hit return, then check out modules/Mail-Audit/

        Okay. New policy since four weeks ago? [perl.org]

        You don't get a bit of a prima-donna vibe from that strategy? It could be spun as "I'm just too sexy for maintenance".

        Thanks for the pointers.

          Yes, that's the one.

          Yeah, people can put a bad spin on anything if they want to, especially if you're doing them a favour by providing them with useful software in the first place. I used to care about this, but I've grown more jealous of my own time.

  • if the idea of coding OSX apps with perl appeals to you, try out http://sourceforge.net/projects/camelbones/

    interface you can lick, source you can like :)

    looks like it's just getting started, so if you're interested, there's probably a zillion ways to contribute.
