  Comment: Could cpantesters run smoke testing on these? (Score 1) on 2010.08.31 16:53

There are relatively few smoke testing running MSWin32 systems.

Having automated smoke testing running on these 7 machines would be a huge win for Perl by significantly increasing the testing of CPAN modules on windows systems

Hi Adam. This seems to be addressing a similar domain to DashProfiler I'd love to see someone integrate Aspects and DashProfiler.

Yes, it only works per-process and per-server, but in my experience (with 80+ servers running many mod_perl processes) it is a very simple and effective way to eliminating the kinds of web-service log-storms you described. It changes an unmanageable flood into a very manageable stream. Highly recommended.

I like to refer people to and say Perl 6 is _more_ Perlish than Perl 5.

  Comment: YouTube: fast route to SuperCollider Programming (Score 1) on 2009.05.18 3:58

Attached to: SuperCollider Programming
I almost mentioned this in my blog post... I think it's worth sharing now because boosting SuperCollider Programming to it's rightful place on the TIOBE Index is clearly a worthy cause. TIOBE only assigns 7% weighting to YouTube (vs 23% to the other search engines) but the number of hits is much lower. So each video uploaded to YouTube with "SuperCollider Programming" in the title (or description, I presume) has a much greater impact on TIOBE then each extra web page. (For those with lots of YouTube videos already uploaded perhaps someone could write a little script to append "SuperCollider Programming" to the description :)

If Moose developers won't change the default behaviour (I don't know the issues well enough to argue either way) then I'd hope they'd be open to providing a mechanism to let you do it yourself.

Perhaps you already can by sub-classing Moose::Role.

Attached to: This Is Obviously Bad Evangelism

Funnily enough, a google search for tiobe brings up my "TIOBE or not TIOBE - Lies, damned lies, and statistics" blog post as the third hit.

That post, now almost a year old, still gets several hits per day, and "tiobe" is one of the top search terms bring people to my blog.
