die() is such an often used idiom in Perl that you tend forget its irrevocability in real life ;-(

    Iain will be missed. It was only last November that he gave up some time to present a talk on DateTime at the melbourne.au PM.

    Iain talked in detail how the development was proceeding on the Datetime modules and how he spent the last 8 months hard work crafting hacking ("hacking" is a poor choice of words. Conceptually DateTime is not for the weak of mind). The talk was well presented, informative and most of all amusing (especially the bit on the evolution of the French Revolutionary Calander)

    I will certainly be thinking of him when I'm using any of his modules. His legacy is more than mere code.

    Wherever he is I hope they can use good programmers.

[stevieb]: 16.96 hours of runtime of a Raspberry Pi on a 12v, 7.2Ah battery :) Now to watch now long it takes to recharge the battery completely with my 18v solar cells in the sun :)
[stevieb]: my high-range estimate was 18 hours
[stevieb]: battery was at about 95% capacity when the test began
[stevieb]: in the meantime while it was on battery, I got my shift register issues fixed, as well as certain interrupt issues
