colondee got featured on some bbc program and has enjoyed and influx of traffic (and retarded emails :/). to celebrate i've actually added some features to it. rock

i'm also toying with the idea of adding features to this blog/journal system since it's supposed to be my tech playground. hmmm.

a very nice explanation of continuations and saving state: say you're in the kitchen in front of the refrigerator, thinking about a sandwitch. you take a continuation right there and stick it in your pocket. then you get some turkey and bread out of the refrigerator and make yourself a sandwitch, which is now sitting on the counter. you invoke the continuation in your pocket, and you find yourself standing in front of the refrigerator again, thinking about a sandwitch. but fortunately, there's a sandwitch on the counter, and all the materials used to make it are gone. so you eat it. :-) by luke palmer (i'm turning a bit fanboyish)

Class::Closure is a piece of genius from the indispensable luke palmer. it let's you quickly define classes in perl5 using a regular OO syntax, including inheritance, constructors, destructors, properties (private, read only, simple, get/set), methods and autoloading.

"Last night at a church social I was hit on in broken Russian by a sixteen year old. As I politely explained to him that I was basically 20 and a filthy atheist to boot I was suddenly overcome by thoughts of death. It seems like yesterday that I was sixteen! Twenty is a horrible age that doesn't get you anything worthwhile, only ever closer to disease, dementia, your hands falling off, and finally dying alone in your pyjamas, locked in an apartment no one knows exists. My head was spinning, damn it all, you crazy world, I want to LIVE! In my confusion I gave the boy my phone number."

vera rocks, and so does return to sender.
