Um. Me. Iain Truskett. Can be found as either Spoon or Koschei around the place, and as Braxiatel in rare circumstances. Um. Cool. Ta.

My perl svn repository [] if you want bits of code by me. Also see [] for most of them in action.

My friends [], foes [], fans [], and freaks []. And you can see what my friends are journalling [].

And everybody's journals [] (in order of updating).

Hum de hum.

At present I don't have Internet access. Well, obviously I do or I wouldn't be posting this. I just have irregular access.

Keeping up with everyone's journals is a bit of a pain like that.

So I'm making some changes to Russell 's WWW::UsePerl::Journal module.

To make it do what I want it to, I'm having to had an extra module - it's mostly for elegance's sake. It just abstracts the entries away.

My main problem is that there's a slight mismatch between how I think of journals and how Russell does.

(Hmm. Tannoy just announced that this lab is closing in a few minutes. I'd best go.)

So, rapidly, what my program will eventually do is be run as a cron job that gets the second page of the most recent journal posts and grabs them, formats them (with their comments, hence the 30 delay) and emails them to me.

I find it easier to read a lot of mail than do lots of clicking on web pages. =)

Anyway. Lab closing. Ciao.

  • I've uploaded it to CPAN after some changes (although 0.04 is the one you send me). Basically, stringification was added for backwards compatibility, and a date method was added. Hammer it and send me patches and tests ;)

    Also, could you share the cron job script with us?
