AppConfig::DBI and my toasted laptop

[ #3260 ]
I recently published AppConfig::DBI to the CPAN after emailing p5ee and dbi-users that it would not be uploaded until an RFC process ending Sunday night. That was all very true until my laptop emitted smoke... I had been jiggling the power cord for about the last 2 weeks to keep the power working and did not realize that I was loosening the soldering around the power supply and then yesterday I was jiggling it when poof! Smoke and no more power... so I kept going on the battery and in a panic uploaded everything I feared I would never see again - including my proposal to Sam's on my DBI book. NEXT TOPIC - Module naming Randy Ray made a good point on perlmonks.org - my module is named as if it is providing a database persistent store for AppConfig. So I think it should be called DBIx::Connect. But then again Tim has said that DBIx is polluted. So what now DBIxxx?
