I took a look at Spreadsheet::WriteExcel::FromDB, but it doesn't appear very flexible. I think I'll pass.
I need to use DBD::Proxy at some point just to see how it works (and to say that I used it). I doubt I really need it with Oracle.
While writing reports isn't very exciting, the client-server app my co-worker and I are working on is lots o' fun. Keeps me sane. That, and playing with Visual Perl has been fun (collapse...expand...collapse...expand...that's sooo cool). I thought about installing it at home but that's 2 gig of my measley 8 GB partition.
Tried to build Math-GMP on both my home machine and at work, using both cygwin and mingw32. No luck. I can get the gmp library to build, but I can't get the module itself to 'make'. I'm just trying to get Net::SSH::Perl support at home for ssh1. From what I've read, no one else can get it to install either.
I've asked Ben about just using Math-BigInt for MSWin32 machines. We'll see what he has to say.
