Opaque in what way? On the RHS of the page there is a column containing the list of aggregated blogs.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    (A) It isn't at all obvious that the big column in the middle is an aggregation of blogs (let alone "news"); and (B) it's even less obvious that the list of links on the right is the set of blogs being aggregated. Nowhere is either fact stated. It's not even obvious that the list on the right is links to blogs. You'd have to click on one (or more) to deduce that. Seeking some kind of supporting documentation, I clicked on Learn about the program. Ok, I learned that "Your blogs will be aggregated" on the site. Well, that's something, but it's very far from revelatory.

    I ask you to step back, clear your mind, and look at that page with the eyes of a newcomer. (1) What do you suppose you're looking at? (The page itself doesn't say!); (2) Does it look conspicuously like a resource useful to one wishing to answer the question "What's new in the world of Perl?" I can tell you from first-hand experience that (1) o_O and (2) not really, no.

      It looks like the first part of the title is usually the site the news item comes from and news items link to said site. It doesn't explicitly advertise that it is a news aggregator, but looking over the list of news items should make that more obvious.

[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus we will be glad to have you here more frequently, tho ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena oh I thought you found the error by adding -exec mp3info
[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
