  • You mean the preparations “are heating up”. “Hotting up” is not a word. :-) (Sorry, I just can’t bear to look at that.)

    • "Hotting up" isn't a word... it's two words ;-)

      The first 3 google hits for the phrase come from the Economist, St John's Ambulance, and the BBC.

      The phrase has a rather different meaning (increasing in intensity) from "heating up" (making warmer). Sure it's informal. You may not like it, but I'm not sure that pretending it doesn't exist is very sensible.

      osf (slightly defensive, as he recommended bepi to use it ;-)



      • Oh. 0x0809 [English (UK)] as opposed to 0x0409 [English (US)].

        I was a little puzzled at first look, myself.

        (The hex numbers are the Win32 language codes. The higher 6 bits select dialects, lower 10 bits are the languages)

        The new Strawberry Perl for Windows has been released! Check for it.
  • Amy Hoy is speaking at a Perl workshop? I didn't know she did Perl.
    • Thomas Fuchs is a Ruby/Javascript guy and Amy Hoy user experience specialist: as far as I know, neither of them "do Perl".

      I'm expecting this will be A Good Thing, as it broadens the appeal of the workshop, while bringing a new perspective.



      • One of the workshops I enjoyed most from a talks perspective was the last Nordic Perl Workshop in Stockholm, where alongside the usual "Perl talks" there were speakers from the academic world who were doing research on dynamic languages, as well as a presentation on the Seaside Smalltalk web framework. So I'm very much looking forward to seeing how this works out at the IPW. :-)
