However the support mail list is very quiet. This means one of two things. Either a) our scripts are so easy to install and use that no-one needs support or b) no-one is using them yet. I suspect that option b is more likely.
So the problem seems to be that whilst we're doing all this great work, very few people actually know about it. Which means that we need better marketing. I'm therefore asking all of you wonderful people out there in use.perl-land to help us. If anyone knows of a way to promote the use of nms over MSA then please either a) just do it or b) tell me about it. For years the Perl community has been looking for a decent replacement for MSA, now that we have one it would be a shame if it remained a well-kept secret.
Emailed CMP recently to ask why I'd only received one copy of SysAdmin. It seems that my subscription ran out after that copy. This seems a little strange to me as I had an article in TPJ #20 and one of the perks of getting an article in the magazine was supposed to be a two-year extension to my subscription. I'll chase them up on it and see if I can find out what happened.
I also suggested that they let Perl people subscribe to only the TPJ issues of SysAdmin (one a quarter) as from what I've seen the other content of the magazine is of limited interest to me. They didn't seem keen on the idea, but if other people suggested the same thing, they might reconsider.
And finally, the sandwich shop downstairs from the office has started to sell a brie and parma ham on ciabatta sandwich. Now my all-time favourite sandwich is bacon, brie and advocado on granary bread, but currently this comes a very close second.
