Righty ho. I've got Parallel::MPI::Simple working on two different platforms now so am quite happy and bouncy. The tests don't always run in the correct order, but that's the price of having multiple processes at once.
Fun problems I encountered:
What do I still need to do?
But what does the far future hold...?
In other news, had great fun at our lifesaving competition including coming second out of eighteen teams, which was cool. Then spent Sunday in Wales in a Kayak (and about two minutes in the water at the bottom of a stretch of grade-III). Much of the rest of my time has been filled with work for classes and investigations of the jobs I could do. It's proving to be much easier to decide that companies suck than it is to decide they are worth working for. I do at least have a couple of nice places to try now.
Oh, and Inline::C ROCKS!
