in thread Automatic module installation

Not available on CPAN? So, what's in http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-authors/Abigail/The_Net-1.1.tgz then? You won't find it when searching because 'The' isn't a registered namespace, and the search functionality isn't checking what has really been uploaded.

Note that The::Net doesn't install the module - it will fetch it each time.

    Not available on CPAN?

    Sigh. Please do learn the difference between "this" and "that".
    This module (the one we're discussing named Blah.pm) will not enter CPAN. That module (the other, slightly off-topic one named The_Net) already has.

    Update - My mistake, as described by the anonymous reply.

    - Yes, I reinvent wheels.
    - Spam: Visit eurotraQ.
    

      Sigh. Please do learn the difference between one level of indentation and two. The not available on CPAN was a reply to Corion's posting, not yours. Corion after all claimed the The::Net namespace was unclaimed, which (s)he could only think if (s)he was assuming the The::Net module wasn't available on CPAN.

[ambrus]: Corion: in that case I also ask the people who rent the conference rooms to tell conference organizers about the available tech.
[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
[ambrus]: The pillars are there because this is in the 6th floor of building R of BME, which is an attic that was built in after the original building, which is also why the elevator doesn't go that high and the windows are tiny.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hehe ;) Yeah - such real life stuff is far more inconveniencing than wasting display area due to screen ratio problems :)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, it's a bit tricky. you can try to adjust the slides live to cover only a part of the screen, but it's still hard.
[ambrus]: Corion: two very hard things about presentations I should try to work on if I have twenty times as much free time as in real life are:
