I've been skulking around at The Perl Monks site lately, after having seen several references spring up around here. Lo and behold, I bumped into chromatic when discussing a question I posed.

(if you are curious, the question has to do with scalar evaluation of a perl hash when it is tied...it always returns 0, so "if %hash" does not mean the same thing for a tied hash as opposed to a native hash, assuming it has entries. You can get around it by saying "if keys %hash", but I'm a fan of consistency)

Mudbugs tomorrow! I can't wait. I hear tell Botz is planning on adding mushrooms and whole heads of garlic into the batches, along with the regular new potatoes and corn. The gills on mushrooms really soak up those spices. Mmmm! I am glad I no longer wear contacts; it's tempting to wipe away the tears.

Read Souls In the Great Machine recently. Pretty fantastic science fiction romp, if you ask me.
