[stevieb]: I have fixed a boatload of issues across several of my distributions, including a couple that have been nagging for a very long time and were exceptionally difficult to solve. Saving $ before we move, so thought I'd have a code session...
[stevieb]: ...session weekend. Went far better than I could have imagined. Even got a bunch of stuff soldered for another one of my electronics projects on the go, and am working on a fix for a MetaCPAN::Client issue I found
