New Job – New Server

Sorry I’ve not posted for a while, been really busy at work (MEN) working on the new site, however next Friday is my last day here. I’m leaving for pastures new. I’m soon to be the new development manager for Set Fire Media.

I’ll be working mainly with RoR but still a bit of Perl – as a result I’ve been playing with Rails for a couple of weeks now, and all I can conclude is that RoR might as well be Catalyst with Moose and a different templating front end. You can certainly see where the ideas have crossed over!

With regards to the new server, this is now a new server running Cherokee rather than Apache, so we’ll see how things go!

Welcome to

Welcome to, the replacement for All the content from, has been imported here. The idea is that we should hopefully be able to get a couple of Perl or other Dev related blogs going on here and have them on etc. will be an aggregate of these blogs, and perhaps some other content. So hopefully more good content soon to be appearing!

New Server

There’s probably no god

“There’s probably no god, now stop worrying and enjoy your life”

I knew these campaigns were running in London, but was surprised to see it on a bus in Stockport. Never heard a religious message proclaiming “There probably is a god”!

Happy new year

Sorry, I’m not actually dead… I’ve actually been posting loads recently, just not here. I’ve been concentrating on my photography blog for a while. New camera and not working much over Christmas, kinda lead me to work on my photography a little more. Anyway, I’ll be back with some Perl love soon I’m sure!

CPAN not playing nice…

Just been trying to set some modules up using the CPAN shell on my server and was having some terrible trouble with modules all failing to make, with no real error message. All that was reported was “Not OK”.

So I hit the console and tried to manually make one of the modules and that worked fine. After some more digging I discovered that for some reason the config variable telling cpan where the make binary wasn’t set, so a simple “o conf make /usr/bin/make” and now everything’s hunky dory.

Silly CPAN.

Math Joke…

An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar.

The first one orders a beer.

The second orders half a beer.

The third, a quarter of a beer.

The bartender says “You’re all idiots”, and pours two beers. ”

Devel::NYTProf Screencast

Tim Bunce of DBI fame has made his screencast from OSCON this year. It’s about Devel::NTYProf. If you haven’t used it, it’s an awesome module and well worth watching the screencast. Most amusing is perhaps the lack of the audience getting his British humor!

Devel::NYTProf was originally made by the good people at the New York Times and Tim took it over fairly recently. It kicks Devel::Dprof’s ass, so go take a look.
