  • Funny that you mention that you use Vim for editing the source files, but you don't mention what database you use — if any. As you said:

    Also, I really need better database migration code.

    it would help if you say what databases you are migrating between.

    Neither do you say what Perl version you use. Likely that's either 5.8.x or 5.10.x. 5.10 is nice for new features, but I have had some experience with a few nasty Unicode bugs in it, that didn't happen in 5.8.x.

    • My Mac is using 5.8.8 and the public facing version is using 5.10. The database is currently SQLite, but this is likely to change in the future (regrettably, MySQL is so frickin' easy to install and use. I prefer PostrgreSQL after it's up and running, but I've found that getting there has been daunting for me. I'm a lousy admin).

      Hence, there are a couple of tech issues I've not been explicit about.
