( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi All,
  My new module is now available on CPAN. Before I go much further to implement more features I'd like to ask the all knowing (you guys) what you think, and whether there are any serious changes I need to make to the way I'm doing things. Also suggestions as to what features you'd like to see next would be good.

Please bare in mind this is only version 0.05, I really just wanted to get something up at this point.

I've named the module Image::Mate
http://search.cpan.org/~cosmicnet/

At the moment it allows you to create or load an image, change it's colour, draw lines, and save it. Sorry really not much at all. Next I'll be adding text capabilities, and some sort of distortion (putting together a more flexible captcha module than the ones I've found) and possible an adaptation of GD::Barcode (might need to create these from the current piece of software I'm working on).

So if you'll all lend me a bit of your advice that would be great :)

Lyle Hopkins
P.S. Before someone mentions the problems with the POD, I've already fixed it and it'll be looking right in the next version uploaded.

    [Corion]: You can only reach me by pager
    [Corion]: Maybe the solution would be to launch a cron job every minute that takes two measurements a minute apart and sends a mail if the usage is below on the first and above threshold on the last measurement
    [marto]: that's essentially it :)
    [marto]: I think the long term solution would be to have sysadmins that do their job, so I don't have to do everything :P
    [marto]: they already have an entire BMC patrol system, which they disabled, because it was sending out spurious messages. So rather than fix the issue, or even find out what it was, they turned it off. No messages, can't be any problems, right?
    [Corion]: marto: But having open tickets / incidents increases the pressure on them ;) Of course, likely your contract / SLA specifies an upper limit for the number of incidents :-D
    [Corion]: marto: Ow ...
    [marto]: Corion They don't get into trouble for the number of tickets, or even breached tickets they have
    [marto]: which is a core issue with the client
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, I can imagine that
