So I sat down the other evening and read all the way through the PHP. Wow! They've got a lot of really cool stuff. Integrated crypto, db support, session management, electronic cash payment support, and a bunch more nutty stuff that I can't even think of right now. I'm thinking about adding some php stuff ot this site; I've just gotta figure out a way to work it in without horribly mangling what I've already got.
OH yeah, Attyz -- the local #e perl bigot -- pointed me in the direction
of HTML::Mason, a Perl module
that allows you to embed Perl with the <% foo %> syntax (ala
ASP and PHP). I haven't had a chance to look throught it yet, but
what I saw looked cool.
Still no word on my latest updates to
Gnut; I guess the maintainer is
on vacation or something. :/ Guess I'll have to wait to find out the
status of my patches. In the meantime, you can read some interesting
thoughts I had regarding Gnutella
and peer-to-peer networking technology in
my Advogato diary
(yup, I actually updated it).
For those of you who haven't had a chance to try out
Planetarion, now is your
last chance to create an account before the game starts again. I'm
not sure exactly when they're going to start the next round, but it's
supposed to be sometime this week. If you do start playing, make sure
to join Richlowe,
Giblet, myself and several
others in the FEH alliance.
