in reply to Install parallel Perl on Debian

You didn't note why running a non-default perl with Debian was a problem that I noticed. The reasons are two simple facts that merge to somthing annoying. The first is that key parts of Debian's infrastructure are written in perl. The second is that perl 5.8.0 (IIRC) makes changes to the meaning of v5 => 'yadda'. Combine these, and you get a dpkg that no longer works, and thus a system that is quite screwed, until you either revert your perl, or fix the incompatable bits of script.

[Corion]: choroba: I'm still using spod5 as my pod-to-ooxml- converter didn't really get off the ground so far
[choroba]: Slidy is basically HTML, so I'm not sure I really fly high :)
choroba should make his presentation scaffolding public
[Corion]: choroba: spod5 converts pod to S5 HTML, so it's also still basic. I find the lack of animations (in the sense of "highlight this", "highlight that" in code) somewhat tedious as I do it with rendered PNGs
[Corion]: I haven't found a good way to include/use the source SVGs I use for creating the PNGs directly as animations
