Perl 5.16.0 is coming soon!
In October 2011, Jesse Vincent handed me the patch pumpkin, meaning that it’s now my responsibility to keep Perl development on track and moving apace. One of the biggest parts of this responsibility is making sure that we release new versions of perl, and that they’re fit for human consumption!

RPG Recap: Alar, 2012-03-17 and 2012-04-14
I fell behind a bit in writing up Alar recaps. Oops! Things have been very busy lately, which I should write about in a separate post.
essential (so far) iPad software
I just got my first receipt for iPad software that I bought since buying my iPad:
So, I bought an iPad.
For a long time, I had no interest in an iPad, especially for $500. Mostly I wanted a big screen for reading the newspaper, PDFs, and comic books. To solve this problem, over time, I ended up with two different devices: a Kindle DX and an HP TouchPad.

My Appendix N
The original AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide is often considered one of the best role playing game books ever published. It isn’t that the rules presented are perfect, but that Gary Gygax presents his reasoning and ideas, and he encourages the reader to build his own world and rules the same way. It’s a good book, and I was very happy to be reminded of this about a year ago when I got a new copy of it and started to flip through it again.
how I spent my Perl QA Hackathon
I’ve been a big fan of the Perl QA Hackathon since the first one in Oslo in
- I always walk away from them feeling like I’ve finished a lot of work that I would otherwise have let go unfinished, and with refreshed interest in the general work of Making CPAN Stuff Go. This year, I was sent to the hackathon by a grant from the Perl Foundation, and I promised to write up what I got done. That works out just fine, since I’m pretty pleased with how it all went, and I’m looking forward to writing my report.
