JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Fresh O'Reilly Goodness

[ #13232 ]
The combination of urging by Reabena and a gift card to Borders resulted in my purchase last night of _Embedding Perl in HTML with Mason_.

Interestingly, I've just realized that I can use bookmarks at the site to refer to places in the book, and keep the book free of bookmarks/constant travel/etc., thereby ensuring the value of my investment, as it were.

That plus the other tangibles mentioned at the site as to why the book's worth the money -- can't curl up by the fireplace with an LCD. (Well, you can, but it's not cozy.) Books aren't subject to power failures, etc.

I'm planning to actually build a Mason site, if I can swing it somewheres. I need to find out if either of my free hosting locations currently has Mason and mod_perl installed, so I need to figure out a way to test it without bugging the admins, if possible.

  • If you can't get it for free, you might want to check out []. They have a special for OS contributors where you can get one of their virtual servers for $45 instead of $55/65. It's pretty nifty - I have root and can do as I please within reason. The downside is that it was a bare install in that I had to make use of the ports system to install some basic programs to make the system usable (like emacs :-). But I've learned more about FreeBSD and that is good.
