  • Wouter Verhelst: Perl 'issues'
    I just watched a CCC talk in which the speaker claims Perl is horribly broken. Watching it was fairly annoying however, since I had to restrain myself from throwing things at the screen. If you're going to complain about the language, better make sure you actually understand the language (...)

  • Benjamin Mako Hill: Consider the Redirect

  • Steve Kemp: Reducing, or redirecting at least, charitable donations.
    This is the time of year when there are lots of adverts shown on TV solicating donations for charities, which frequently end with the two words "thank you". I've always felt there were too many charities in the world, and that it was hard to half-heartedly give money to one charity this (...)
