Paving for 5.8.6

Guess first off is heyas Planet Gentoo! OK, real post…84744 is in the tree for tracking the dev-perl ebuild conflicts. I’d like to see at least everything bumped so that it is at least current with what comes with 5.8.6, better yet would be to add || perl-5.8.6* to all inclusion ebuilds, but one beast at a time. Now if someone could just explain why iggy gets to have bugs filed about him… 😉

what memory problem?

I’m an idiot – that’s right, you read it here first. That resident memory size I was complaining about is unavoidable in a sense – after all, the size of the perl binary is a factor in any running perl process. Duh. So if I’m really worried about total memory usage, then I need to consider recombining the two processes (reporter and validator) back into a single entity, which I had avoided so that if one died the other would keep running.


In case anyone at all cares about the battle against the Squirrel Menace…we finally got someone out here to put down traps. It was a warm, sultry 50 that day. The next day it was below 30 and we got a good 6 inches or more of snow, burrying the traps. Figures. My heart was broken, the squirrel(s) were flaunting their ability to make tracks alongside the traps as they (she?) went in and out of my attic, and I was facing another long, drawn out fight to free my roof. Then yesterday, when the snow melted, I looked up and behold I did see the glory of the trap at work! That’s right kids, we’ve caught ourselves a real, in the fur squirrel. Now to get someone out here to patch that hole before her cronies attempt to move in. Not to mention getting the catcher back out here to remove the scrambling, irate squirrel from our roof.
