Well, I'm back from Viet Nam and back to work, study and thesis. I work at Pacific Solar - we make and sell solar modules (and do lots of R&D). I'm currently in my last year of electrical engineering at UNSW. My thesis is based around designing a new control system for one of the lasers we use in the production process at work.
The only perl related news I have is that I'm working on a basic interpreter written in perl and using Parse::RecDescent. I haven't posted the code on perlmonks yet because I'm don't know if this is the appropriate forum for module reviews or not. (BTW - I know there is a basic parser on CPAN already - I'm writing my own so I can learn how.) If you're interested or want to see the code, then feel free to mail me.

[choroba]: No, if there are no threads, then the user wants to use MCE. If there are threads, the user can choose.
[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
[choroba]: just require any of MCE and threads. Not sure if that's possible in the cpanfile, but should be possible early in the Makefile
[1nickt]: The app expects threads as default anyway, right?
[choroba]: that's true
[1nickt]: expects threads *to be* the default
