Unfortunately, they’ve just started to de-prioritize content syndicated from elsewhere due to Google not indexing it. Since every article has to go through a moderation and editing process, this means that I may not be able to fulfill my promise to post new Perl content there every week. You can still find it here on phoenixtrap.com, of course. ☺️
I’ll be reprising my presentation on Perl subroutine signatures and type validation for the Boston Perl Mongers on Tuesday, March 9 at 7 PM EST. Visit their wiki for details; they’ll be posting the Jitsi URL shortly before the meeting. There’s also a Meetup page.
I was gettingreports that comments on my posts were being blocked with a “suspected bot” message. Turns out the plugin for MOJO Marketplace was to blame. It came with the WordPress account on my hosting provider, but I don’t think I’m using it, so in the bin it goes.
Got a new toy today: the CalDigit TS3 Plus dock. It’s much like the one I have at the office, and I use it to keep the sprawl of wires plugged into my laptop to a minimum. Going to come in handy once that monitor comes in.
