in thread Hash references moving between modules

Hmm... Well, derefrencing a hashref can be done in the way you showed up there, but it is perfectly valid to get a scalar back from a hashref this way as well:
$scalar = $$hashref{key};
and assigning into a hashref can be done in the same way:
my $hashref = {}; $$hashref{key} = $scalar;
Perhaps taking a look at References quick reference will sum it up nicely.

    I noticed that a while after I wrote it. I guess I'm too used to using ->.. I think thats more readable than $$ ..

[Eily]: can't the nodelet be moved though? Maybe you could put one that doesn't change first ("Sections" or "Find Nodes" for example)
[Eily]: "Other Users" seems like a poor choice :P
[Eily]: nope, Nodelet Settings doesn't let you move the XP Nodelet, CSS might
[marinersk]: That would mitigate the distraction/jangle issue, but then the information wouldn't be easy to find when it is populated. Plus, I don't currently see a way to move it, but I'm not done poking around on that point yet.
[marinersk]: Ah, you beat me to it.
