Heh. I'm not sure I like the idea of being altered [sic] by e-mail...

But, if you need to be alerted by e-mail, doesn't that mean you're not checking in often enough?

    That's what I get for not proof reading. <grin>.

    No, it doesn't mean you're not checking in often enough. It would actually encourage you to check in more often. See, if I don't check in often, and I keep geting these e-mails, then I know that I should check in more often... each e-mail is like an invitation to check the site.

    update: Er... YES, it does mean you're not checking in often enough... there is that proof reading again. sigh.

      Each e-mail would inevitably have to end with something like:
      Check this link in the next 24 hours or else.
      Signed,

        24 hours is kind of short vroom. Maybe 168 hours... or else. (uh... or else what?) >8-)

        update:
        OH!!!!! shudder

[Corion]: choroba: Ooooh - I didn't think of that! I write my presentations as POD and if it "roughly" looks like Perl code, I should also syntax-check that...
[haukex]: Yes sorry I don't run them all the time, my POD tests are only run as author tests (and are excluded when I'm using Devel::Cover)
[Corion]: choroba: Hmm - no, I keep the snippets inline, but as my framework also has support for capturing output etc., maybe I should do the same...
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, that approach is sane, and it heals the fragility of Pod parsers in a nice way while still syntax-checking stuff
[choroba]: Unfortunately, none of it is online
[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
