Well, I think the use I put them to is awesome, but it’s part of an IRC interface to something, so there’s sort of a maximum cap on awesomeness.
I’ve been working on changing the way my mailflow works, mostly so that I can benefit from the work that I do at Pobox. In order to get rid of some of my old email addresses, I’ve been updating a lot of user accounts and list subscriptions. Today, as I’ve started to get tax documents, I thought I’d update my TurboTax account.
hide recently told me that he’d moved from Quicksilver to LaunchBar. I try to do whatever the Canadians do, since I hear they will soon be our new overlords. I figured I’d do what I do with most commercial software: download it and use it during its trial period until it became clear that it was worth the money, or until I was so irritated at it that I had to stop.
root@backup:/var/backup/mail# tar jcvf 200701.tar.bz2 200701 zsh: correct '200701.tar.bz2' to '200601.tar.bz2' [nyae]?
Well, Martha has now been out in the atmosphere for a bit longer than half her life. She’s got four teeth out, and I’m pretty sure she’s working on two more. She’s back in a “I’m not really very interested in standing” phase, but I still think she’s going to start walking pretty soon. It’s hard to say whether she means anything specific when she says “dadadadda” or “mamamamama,” but it can still be cute – it’s certainly cuter than when she’s saying, “WAAAAAAUGH!”
Today, Rafael Garcia-Suarez and the Perl 5 Porters released perl 5.10. This is totally fantastic. Perl 5.10 contains a whole lot of great new features, from small but helpful changes to error messages to new ways to scope variables and, well, all kinds of other stuff. I gave a talk about 5.10’s new features at PPW, and I look forward to getting to start using some of these features in production code ASAP.
I am getting pretty darned sick of CPAN Ratings. They can be quite useful: I can see what modules people like or don’t like, and I can get an idea of why people like or don’t like my modules.
RCN has been hassling me with automated phone calls to set up a new account password. If I don’t do that, apparently, I will never be allowed to discuss my account with them again. I don’t get it, but I just called in to set up my password.
