Last Wednesday was our company white elephant party organized by our tireless party organizer Kimmie. This was the first white elephant we've had since the year we moved up to San Francisco where a nameless executive stole a toy from a young child in exchange for her $20 charity donation. The child cried and cried. There were no children and no tears this year I'm happy to say, but there were some executives who joined in the mix. Part of the fun we missed at our first white elephant were the challenges. When its your turn, you can either pick... Continue »

Dav set me up back in 2006 with Movable Type and was my very own IT help. Life gets busy with jobs and a toddler, and I've often felt stuck since I really can't do much with Movable Type other than post. Any design changes I wanted, I'd have to force Dav from his zillion other tasks...Finally, he imported all to TypePad. Both are Six Apart products. I'm very excited since this will allow me tons more freedom to tinker with my blog in addition to posting. The ease to do things will be lovely!! The main reason is our... Continue »

In a typical web application the most frequently occurring task is to get parameters from a request. Perl community and popular frameworks have been having two interfaces to this: `param()` and `parameters()`. And there's a few issues. ### param() Good old CGI.pm has a convenient `param()` method, which behaves differently based on a context: my $q = CGI->new; my @keys = $q->param(); # get the list of param names my $name = $q->param('name'); # scalar context: always get single my @names = $q->param('name'); # list context: get multiple (if any) This is quite nice, since your code says *how you want values* by explicitly stating the context (whether a scalar context or a list context). The only place it bites... Continue »

Hard to be more touristy but I even went to the Rockefeller Center, because the Xmas tree is such a big tradition in NY. Getting closer but certainly not lonelier! Times Square is unreal at night with huge walls of LCD signs surrounding it. And in a middle small bistrots chairs and table like if we were in some terrace in Provence. Only difference is that the sun would be replaced by UV lights :) Different place, different style... This last one was quite strange: two attractive young ladies lightly dressed in a corner window of 5th avenue! I think... Continue »

The most important step to get started is to install Plack and other utilities. Because PSGI and Plack are just like normal Perl module distributions, the installation is as easy: just launch your CPAN shell and type cpan> install PSGI Plack PSGI is a specification document for PSGI interface, so by installing the distribution you can read the documents on your shell with perldoc PSGI or perldoc PSGI::FAQ command. Plack gives you the standard server implementations, core middleware components and utilities like plackup or Plack::Test. Plack doesn't depend on any non-core XS modules, so with any Perl distribution later than... Continue »

I've had a bunch of tabs and bookmarks open for things I really should oughta read, and I figure they're worth sharing. :) * NANOG: Meeting Presentation Archive, a whole library of presentations related to the world of networking. Some of these topics are highly specialized, and some of them are really fascinating. Like this tutorial: How to Accurately Interpret Traceroute Results, which is seriously a must-read if you ever deal with traceroutes. And, a little more advanced, is Datacenter Rack Switch Redundancy Models. (I'm firmly on the side of the top-of-rack switch. :) * What is Cassandra Good For?.... Continue »

This isn't a funny matter so I'll respond to this in all seriousness. Yes, your parents can read your text messages. In fact, when they bought you your phone there was an option to send a copy of all your text messages (and the message you receive) to a central database. That database is accessible to anyone who has the username and password, including your parents, grandparents and teachers. However, there is a good news: a few parents opt out of this database option. The database option often goes by the name "family plan." If you're concerned, you should ask... Continue »
