8.04 has server-class support until 2013.

Even so, 5.10 is at its end of life too, so that's just delaying the inevitable.

    But still, it's better than doing nothing. The next step would be to update the staging machine to the next LTS version, that hopefully has a newer perl. As a nice side effect, dlarochelle gets a chance to plan for continuous updates, and to test that plan.

[choroba]: Isn't Using PerlPod Creatively rather a meditation?
[choroba]: I don't see a question
[1nickt]: ugh, I stuck my head in the bass bin for 30 seconds on a dare at Ted Nugent at Hammersmith Odeon. Yes, I am 40% deaf now.
[johngg]: My daughter is incredibly jealous of my wife who got to see The Clash at Brixton many years ago. They went to see The Vaccines there recently.
[1nickt]: But the bands are even louder! I saw Spearhead (Michael Franti) at an outdoor show and had to walk a mile away to not feel pain in my chest! Babies were crying ... I asked the sound engineer why it was necessary to have the bass so loud and he laughed...
[Discipulus]: but the best i attended live was Mano Negra Patchanka at Forte Prenestino .. in 1990
[Corion]: Hmmm - Mano Negra or at least Manu Chao seem to put on a good live show. At least the one live CD I have from Manu Chao sounds good ;)
Discipulus feels the same jealousity of the johngg's daughter
[1nickt]: choroba I agree
[choroba]: Playing in a punk rock band for 20 years... my hearing is quite bad
