Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot to me.

#perl6 is even more active today than it was before; things are happening there very smoothly and pleasantly... The lambda-butterflies are so adorable nowadays.

Ah, this must be how a proud grandparent feel like. :-)

Ah. But words can heal, too...

Translating this series to Chinese has been deeply therapeutic for myself, and I'd like to thank masak++ again for bringing me back to #perl6. :-)

  Comment: Socialtext 4.0 Hosted? (Score 1) on 2010.05.14 20:10

Hi! I agree Socialtext 2.0 really is subpar. :-)

However, I'm coincidentally working for Socialtext, and am one of the main hackers of its Wiki Syntax!

I wonder if we can set up a Free-50 hosted account for the domain, and import the existing Perl 6 Wiki content: See for details.

The gist is that all writers (not readers) need to be a CPAN author, which may have the nice dual side-effect of encouraging CPAN authorship and reducing spam.

The Socialtext 4.0 version has considerably more markup, including proper table and spreadsheet support, as well as JavaScript-based per-page plugins, so if there's a JS-based highlighter we can easily use it.

If you'd be agreeable to such an arrangement, I can help importing the existing Wiki content to a hosted space just to see how it would look like, and work on lifting the 50-editor restriction if you think it makes sense.

Thoughts? :-)

I've just posted a translation on - It's translated verbatim except for a final ":-)" suffix.

Thank you again for the wonderful post!

Pm, that's wonderful on so many levels. I'd like to translate that into Chinese and repost with credit on my personal blog, if it's okay with you...

Also, reading your piece prompted me to add my own reply to chromatic++, as a practical exercise in sublimation of our collective memories.

All in all, thank you for carrying the torch forward, with a very sound design, and a much higher bus number by now. :-)

  Comment: So I tried Padre for the first time on a fresh Win (Score 1) on 2009.08.23 21:38

And truly, Padre is great, and #padre even greater.

While the combined +Six .msi installer did crash from New...->Anything, and could not highlight anything other than Scintilla/Perl5, I've been able to get warm, welcoming and generally excellent support from #padre from Ahmad, using the public anonymous-IRC page, under the nick "user2560".

To quote Matthew 25:40 from GWT: "I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you did for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant [they seemed], you did for me." Adam, I'm glad to see that you're still grinding the first-time-user POV meme into everybody. I cherish the time when you grinded that POV to me re Module::Install. A lot. Rock on! :-)

Perhaps something like GHC Plugins? :-)
