[ #12842 ]

Woke up to the surprising news that I'd been nominated for an ActiveState Active Award in the Programmers' Choice; Perl section. Was surprised by it.

--- social meeting. Was in two minds about going, but I'm glad that I did (modulo the ActiveMan jokes)


jns told me that the magic words I was looking for are sealed and override which are what C# uses, so Class::Mumble becomes Class::Sealed.


Tom and I riffed a little about Mariachi, which led to a simple yet cunning plan about how to move pagination out of the code and into the templates.


Arthur semi prodded me about the PerlTIEIO stuff I'd long since abandoned.

In remembering it I realised it's probably simple enough to get what Arthur wants out of the deal, by adding extra calls into the perlio api.

Scheduled for the mythical tuit delivery that might happen soon.
