My blog

Here are the latest blog posts I’ve written. My plan is to write entries more frequent in the future, but often actual hacking comes in the way.

I’ve written a module I think is rather useful: CatalystX::Controller::Sugar. This module (will hopefully) make chained actions be your default when writing a controller in Catalyst. I remember when I first started looking at Catalyst – I didn’t see the reason for doing chained actions, and I certainly didn’t understand how they worked. I still …

I must say I enjoy getting rt-tickets. “Why?”, you might ask. Well, It’s probably the only way I can actually know that someone use, or has tried to use a module I’ve written. The bad (if you can call it bad) thing about getting a ticket is that it’s rather critical that it gets fixed. …

Line noise: parentheses

1st of June, 2009

I’ve been discussing how bad perl code looks and I’m a bit surprised: I consider () more noisy than $, %, @ and friends, while the people I discuss this with, really likes parentheses. Consider this: push(@text, sprintf(‘I got %i foos’, int(shift(@{ $obj->get_foo() })))); Versus: push @text, sprintf ‘I got %i foos’, int shift @{ …

Wow, Moose is cool!

30th of May, 2009

I was introducing Moose (and perl oo) to a java guy the other day, and he replied: “No, shit. Is that possible?”, “Now I understand the fuzz about multiple inheritance” and “Wow, Moose is cool!”. I must confess: It brings comfort to my heart to hear a Java guy talk down on his own language, …

Which name to pick?

12th of May, 2009

I’m writing a new module, which is currently named “Net::DHCPd”. It’s not a good name imo, since Net::DHCPd sounds more like a module that actually is a dhcp server, which mine is not. This is what it can, or is supposed to support in the future: Interact with ISC DHCPd Start/stop/restart the daemon Parse and …

Multimedia updates (partially old news)

25th of May, 2008

I’ve been enjoying xbox mediacenter on my xbox 1.x for several years now and I’ve finally gotten the opportunity to install it on my htpc as well. This is because the xbmc-team has ported it to Windows, Mac and Linux. To my big surprise I was able to install the Linux port through Ubuntu‘s package …

More perl modules

6th of May, 2008

I’m working on some more perl-modules now: YAML::Object and POE::Component::TFTPd. I’ve also fixed some issues with SNMP::Effective, and written a new implementation, that uses Net::SNMP instead of SNMP. The YAML-module is a result of bad typing: I’m quite sick of doing $config->{typoo}{key}. YAML::Object enables you to use method notation, so the above would become $config->typoo->key, …

Fixed overscan

13th of January, 2008

I’ve been googling for quite som time now, and finally I found settings that works for my 720p DFP. I don’t think the specs are important, but I’ll list them anyway: Ubuntu 7.10 xserver-xorg 7.2 nvidia-glx 1.0.9639 Plasma TV 720p / 1080i xorg.conf Section “Monitor” Identifier “Generic Monitor” ModeLine “720p” 74.5 1216 1272 1400 1664 …

YAPC::Europe::2007 Vienna

30th of August, 2007

YAPC::Europe::2007 was a blast! I can’t really put my finger on what was the best, because it was all good. I really recommend every Perl-programmer out there to come to next years YAPC in Denmark/Copenhagen.I had a talk this year as well (Operator overloading, one of the magicks of Perl), but I wasn’t any happy …

YAPC::Europe::2006 Birmingham

4th of September, 2006

Hello peeps. It’s been a while now, but I finally got some spare time to communicate with the world again… I’ve been to the YAPC::Europe this week, and I must say it was quite fun — or at least the time I actually spent in Birmingham. Read more in my diary.
