Ok, so The Rewrite has begun. scoop.kuro5hin.org will likely be really sketchy for a little while, since I'm doing some very heavy-handed editing. There's *so* much to fix... it really will end up looking like a total rewrite.
On the amusing side, I hacked up the Apache::Session::DBIStore module to accept an existing db handle instead of db connection parameters (so it'll work more smoothly with my object structure, and with Apache::DBI). A co-worker of mine did the same thing a few days ago, but I was busy and didn't pay attention, really. Turns out it was only a three-line fix (four if you count the closing bracket :-). Now I'm curious if he did it the same way I did. We usually code the same, and often down to choosing the same variable names and stuff. We'll see.
Tired now. Will probably get to continue on Scoop tomorrow and Tues. at work. :-)
