Thanks, but bye-bye

[ #38895 ]

I'm leaving use.perl. This will be my final post here. use.perl has become less than useless, more like an embarrassment. For two weeks there were no frontpage news. This is not what those curious about Perl should find. The only real news were tucked away in a little side box and pointed to the journal entries. And the journal capabilities are a bit basic, to say the least. Technology has moved on.

I also encourage all use.perl journal authors to move to their own blogs. dagolden++ has already done so. Diversity is good.

Now I'm not blogging regularly either, but I do have a separate blog. If and when I will blog again, it will be there, not here.

If I could delete my account here, I would. Sorry to sound so drastic, but this is what I think.

      • For Perlsphere you just email Only took a couple of days before Earle (Hex) added my blog.

        IIRC Perlshpere was created by Earle because to get your blog added to required two referrers (perhaps even recommendations from bloggers already on planet?).

        I subscribe to both & []

    • Yeah, I think that would be a good idea. may be awful, but its centralization can be useful (after all, you do want readers when you write your blog entries).
    • "Moveable Type" is Perl. Maybe they could install that and then migrate accounts from use.perl to it?

      I would give free time to help make that happen.

    • WebGUI [] is, among other things, an open source perl-powered blogging platform.
