spiraling back towards employment

[ #7099 ]
Well, what's new? I went and got myself a job with these fine people, I start in a month.

I fixed a few things like my minidisc recorder, and perl1[0], plus made a few maintenance tweaks to Text::Glob and File::Find::Rule. I've been hacking a few new things too, like emulating TIEHANDLE using perlio (Hi Arthur!)

I'm also chuffed to announce that File::Find::Rule is now on the modules list (though as ever, 0.02 is the release you want as there's an ickle bug in ->exec that Chris Carline found)

My last months todo list therefore looks like this

  • Send letter accepting job (I have it written, it just needs to meet a postbox)
  • Move house
  • Decide on selling/fixing camper van
  • Revive patcharepositoryup code and run it against a more modern svn snapshot
  • Do what I can towards a stable perl1 release.
  • Magically turn ~200 albums into a representative selection of 32 minidiscs
  • Visit my folks
  • Complete TIEHANDLE emulation under perlio
  • Work on perlio emulation on top of TIEHANDLE
  • ...
  • Profit

[0] ish - there are 2 things that valgrind still considers as errors but which don't bite in any other way. I also deliberately introduced a memory leak rather than properly debug an illegal read to previously freed memory, but I was impatient and someone with more skill can figure out the actual fix.
