You have probably seen this blog article, but it does address some of the same aspects as your talk:

A good idea is next to the version number is giving a recommendation on whether a user should update or not. If it is just a maintenance release addressing smoke test failures on "Titanix - the system they say wouldn't go down" - an upgrade might not be required. Other releases might require updates fixing serious bugs etc. See: http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/JONASBN/Business-DK-CPR-0.05/Changes for an example

Good piece btw - take care,

Perl::Critic is maturing and getting better, it is becoming unavoidable as a tool in the toolbox.

Thanks for all the work and effort.

I am experiencing serious trouble attempting to post journal entries to use.perl.

Somebody else complained about this and somebody else responded, but I cannot find the entry again :-/

use.perl has been my primary blog for a long time, perhaps it is time to move on...

This assignment was a small one, estimated to about 20 hours, it did however go a bit over estimate. The project scope was to develop a form to collect data to populate a PDF page.

I do not quite understand why the court ruling involving the Artistic License has not got more blogging time in the Perl community.

I read an article on the case in Dr. Dobbs, after seeing it mentioned in non-perl RSS feeds.

The article mentions members of the Perl community I have met and our very own Perl Foundation.

So I sat down with the training plans I (somewhat) followed preparing for last years Copenhagen Marathon and attempted to layout a plan, but lazyness got me so I wrote a script.

The date for next years Copenhagen Marathon in 24th. of May 2009 (the argument to the script).

Here is the output (the training plan):

I skipped the Sparta training 13 km. run. My legs are sore after doing 30 km. last week and cleaning/emptying our attic Saturday (which is on the 5th. floor).

Tomorrow night I will do my regular 10 km. and next Sunday I think I am up for something a bit longer.

Soreness and everything taken into consideration it feels really good to be running again and I am aiming for doing 10 km. in 45 minutes.

Ok, yesterday I got my running schedule laid out.

I have not applied kilometer goals etc. I will do that later on, for now I just need to get into a regular interval.

And guess what! - I did 10 km. last night in 50 minutes. My left leg is hurting a bit today, but I think I will be ready for Wednesday where my next run is scheduled.

Update: And my chip died so I need to get a new set before Wednesday and I have no record of this run anywhere...

Sparta had their first marathon practice run yesterday. I did not participate :-/

I had planned to get up to speed so I could run 13 km, but I have not run a single kilometer.

So my plan is to get ready for next sunday, I feel fat, lazy and weak - I have to get back on track. Running is so good in so many ways.

I have been doing a lot of small projects lately so I have decided to do some evaluations of these here, this is the first. I have evaluated projects here before, but I think I am going to do this on a more regular basis.

The first project has been given the title: packages.

Ever since I encountered my first Unix hosts (Ask and Embla) at the University of Copenhagen and I learned about the concept of host names I have always put effort into naming my hosts with good poetic and in my opinion cool names. I recall Rosenkrantz being my first private Linux server, I cannot remember what my first Linux workstation was called - perhaps I should dig into this. Later I have had Golem and Shelob running as FreeBSD servers on an intranet. My public server Leela suffered a d

I have for a long time used the following prompt in my bash shell:

S1="\h \w\n\r% "


hoarfrost /Users/jonasbn

I do however sometimes resort to wanting to copy a path and command to another terminal, where I would just write cd

The % would however give the following error message when pasted:
