22 June 2013: He does exist! Site moved to new host, have SSL version of site if you are into that. Updated Browser page to reflect how to change default browser on GNOME 3.

21 April: Yvonne changed her domain, so went through and replaced a bunch of links. Formerly, I've been adding perl snippets and a few faq entries, they just didn't seem news worthy.

26 February: New example page on how to run commands that take longer to execute without blocking XChat's normal execution: Non-Blocking Execution in Perl

13 November: I wrote up a section on how Debugging Perl Scripts over a week ago, but didn't link it here because I was going to add some more. I didn't really add much more, but it is enough information for now, and it should be in the news.
