PHP and Stuff

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.
