    hmm, I don't get the warm fuzzy feeling I got from reading A1. I was hoping that with stronger typing we would be able to do away to $ @ and % to instroduce variables. That doesn't look like it's going to happen.

    I like the idea of being able to interpolate scalars and lists into strings (to whit: "foo $(scalar exp)" and "foo @(list exp)".

    On the other hand, replacing __END__ with =begin END strikes me as being akin to using the Start menu in Windows to shut down the machine.

marto wonders what fresh hell the firefox update has brought, apart from maxing out CPUs
1nickt was looking into Firefox Extended Support releases yesterday. You don't have to go with the updates!
[erix]: wonderfully red sun here
[LanX]: FF has become a source of instability :(
[1nickt]: erix not so wonderful for the lungs :-(
