You think wrongly.

Allow me to rephrase it in a way that you can understand: you have your head so far up your own ass you could kiss your own tonsils. Hope this helps.

Thanks for getting so efficiently to the root of the problem.

I have just learnt, via a post in the London.pm archive, of the untimely passing away of my friend, Ivor Williams, usually known online and in the Perl world as ivorw.

I think I first met Ivor around 2001, and started collaborating with him on the OpenGuides project shortly after, which was to prove the foundation of a firm friendship.

Otherwise, a Planet would work equally as well.

Obligatory plug for Perlsphere! :)

Ugh. Endless tedious faffing with objects when plain old SQL (plus something snappy to use it with like DBIx::Simple) works perfectly well. If that's a "best practice", I guess I'm happy not being the best.

No.

Good luck trying to convince TPF otherwise.

I already have a general-purpose blog, and Perl's going to become a category in it. But mainly because use.perl is simply too dated.

From now on, on the rare occasions that I actually blog something about Perl, it'll be at Earle's Notebook rather than here - although I'll still be reading and commenting on use.perl, of course. Ciao!
