Dear Log,

Things I did today:

  • Tended to some of the errata for the LWP book.
  • Cooked up some patches to LWP for Gisle. Mostly bugfixes, but also some things to implement the :content_file, :content_cb, and :read_size_hint options on $browser->get(...) / $browser->post(...) methods, as described in the book.
  • Got my authorial box of comp copies of the book in the mail. WHUMP.
  • Sat on the porch and read the Onion. Too much sweltering, so back inside.
  • Watched a lot of TV. HAIL TIVO!
  • Made a zesty summer salad.
  • Consumed a new breed of kiwifruit: they're gold (not green) on the inside, only slightly fuzzy outside, and they taste sort of like a great big sweet grape.
  • Had crazy crazy thoughts that I should soon resume poking at my new pod-parser, to replace Pod::Parser and its ilk. That was all meant to be done months and months ago (on the tails of the Edict of Perlpodspec), but I had to put it (and many many other things) on hold so I could get the book done.
  • Also had a few crazy thoughts about redoing perldoc (i.e., implementing perlman as described in the current edition of Programming Perl.)
  • Felt unproductive for being unable to do it all in a night.
  • Argued with the cat. Not only does he have what we in the ling biz call "turn-taking", but he always insists on having the last word. "Si'ilh?" "What do you want?" "GHHHHH." "What?" "Liwt!" "You're staring at me all panic-stricken. I don't know how to process that." "HooeeeeeeaaaaAAAaaaakkkkkhhnnnhhhh." "That's crazy talk." "Mif."

Just now, some sage words:

<Torgo> purl, advice?
<purl> TorgoX: Slow preparation, fast execution

And now, to bed.
