  • I keep the recent journals slashbox at the very top. In addition to showing you recent journals, there is a link [] to the top journal posters by time, number of entries, number of friends, etc.

    BTW, for anyone who doesn't know, you can set your messaging to let you know at the top of use Perl; whenever someone replies to one of your journal entries.

    J. David works really hard, has a passion for writing good software, and knows many of the world's best Perl programmers

    • Cool! Those stats tell some great stories, like the way everyone was burnt out after TPC and Aug and Sep were quiet months. I love that it's steadily growing.

      Would it be considered uncool to suggest on a few mailing lists (I'm itching to get more mod_perl people involved) that people read for a while and then start their own journal?


      • I don't see what would be wrong with it. Then again, I am not necessarily in tune with how to foster good communities. :-)

    I long hated personal weblogs. I scoffed at the initial news stories that heralded the "Arrival of the Blog Era". Every blog I visited was an irrelevant mess of uninteresting crap.

    Early last year, as I was struggling to read some sense into my life, I decided to install a blogger for my own personal use, to simply use as a personal diary. Searching freshmeat (And finding nothing I wanted to use) I happened across Monaural Jerk. Clicking to the example, I found myself at [], a weblog I found fascina

    • ha, there's at least 3 times as many people on the modperl list as on p5p.

        - ask (list dad on both)

      -- ask bjoern hansen [], !try; do();

      • Does that count people (like me) who much prefer the NNTP interface? How would one count that, anyhow?
        • the nntp server does write logs; but I am not looking too closely at them (and there are still 2345234 uncertainty factors).

          I don't think the number of subscribers to p5p dropped much if at all when I made the nntp thing; and otherwise the number has been fairly constant. (And the mod_perl list has always[1] been larger).

            - ask

          [1] Okay, the last few years anyway.


          -- ask bjoern hansen [], !try; do();

          • I dropped most of the lists I was subscribed too after went live, including p5p. I stayed with a few macperl lists, plus modules@.
  • *grin* And I figured I was the only one going through all the new journal entries whenever I got a spare hour.

    I wonder what that stat curve looks like...


    You are what you think.
