in reply to The last time I used a dial-up modem was...

About a month ago I was in Shanghai, China, staying in the best known but very old hotel near the bund. I wanted to check my email, so late night I went to the business center to see how to get online (I've got my laptop/wireless, but didn't work there). The lady got the PC ready for me (there were only two PCs there, a good indication the service is not used much), after waiting for my yahoo email to come up, I commented to the lady "this is slooooow!", she said: "oh, it's dial-up". I stood up, apologized, and went to find a internet cafe nearby.

[LanX]: quick survey ... Module::Build, ExtUtils:: ModuleMaker or Module::Starter ?
[Your Mother]: Module::Install
[Your Mother]: :P
[LanX]: Moma knows best! ;-)
[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/
