An Immodest Demand

If you fail to URL-encode unsafe characters, the IETF should come to your house and kneecap you. Ditto for the W3C and having invalid XHTML or XML with a DOCTYPE line in it (you breaka da web, I breaka you knees; no DOCTYPE line? then we remove your liver!) Goons will be funded using the new RAND patent system. Violations can be discovered through judicious use of TIA or whatever successor program ends up with funding by having it attached to a bill supporting the proposition that the USA is a really, really great place.

The Rants Are Back!

And this time, I'm abusing a language and its documentation!


and yet, here I am.

Perl Haggis

  1. Take perlguts
  2. tie it up in a neat package

Serves no one.

arturo what say we concentrate on a campaign to get more readership for the Tutorials section of the site?
PsychoSpunk visits Tutorials to see what all the fuss is about. :)
tye we've been hacked! How did naked pictures of Natalie Portman get in Tutorials??
arturo I have several Tutorials things in mind Tutorials. Skywriting. TV Tutorials ads. Any Tutorials other ones? (Tutorials ?)
tye (not on the main page, in some the tutorials themselves, I wish I could remember which ones)
PsychoSpunk Wow, these Tutorials are so crunchy and chockful of flava!
arturo before I read the obfuscation Tutorial, my relationships all ended because my lovers saw right through my code. Now they stick around to probe the deep mystery I have become. Thanks Tutorials!
An interlude follows, during which permission to quasi-immortalize is sought
PsychoSpunk arturo I have no problem with you posting anything that gets people to realize the wonder held within the Tutorials section.
tye So, aturo (sic.), your homenode shows how to get Free Beer! That is so neat

Tremble, Madison avenue.

I'm a part-time Perl programmer. I work for a university in North Carolina, writing little s‎crip‎ts that do neat little things and now I work a lot with XML and Cocoon (eek! Java!), but I still throw some Perl in every chance I get. One of these days, I may grow a second eye, but for now I get along fine without depth perception.

I like s‎crip‎ting languages. I find them much easier to develop in than, say, Java. Which reminds me, I like to rant.

Rant of the day
