Overall, I think the Perl 7 announcement is great news. I only have one small objection:…
I was recently shown this puzzle: There are some things I found a little unclear about it. For example, should the following two circles count as being connected? There is a line between them, even if it’s interrupted by a circle. And what about these two circles? Are they connected? Again, there’s a diagonal line […]
WordPress does have a toolbar for logged-in administrators, but I often like to keep this feature disabled so while I’m viewing the site, I see it like normal visitors do. It’s nice to have a quick way to edit the page you’re currently viewing though. Here’s a way to allow the Ctrl+; keyboard combination to […]
I’ve been doing my grocery shopping online on and off since about 2000 or 2001 and I believe Sainsburys was the first supermarket I’ve used for it, and I did stick with them for a while. Mostly now I use Tesco, though I’ve used Waitrose, Ocado, and ASDA too. Today I found myself ordering from […]
The other useful guide I’ve been following for setting up email lately has been Secure Postifx Using Let’s Encrypt. Let’s Encrypt is a pretty cool certification authority that makes setting up HTTPS for websites not just a doddle, but also free. I’ve been very impressed with it.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU law that forces pretty much all sites to display that annoying “please accept our cookies” message which you see everywhere.

So I have recently been moving from one VPS to another. My first step was to move this website. Second was email services. Now, email has existed a long time. SMTP, the protocol used to transfer mail between clients and servers (and from server to server, and often internally on servers from one queue to […]
I’ve redesigned my website (toby.ink). It now uses WordPress with a Bootstrap 4 theme. It’s also on a brand new VPS which I’m hoping to move all my small personal sites to because my old VPS is still running Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS! Hopefully I’ll be posting a lot more than I used to.
Technically, I already announced it, but now I’ve renamed it. MooX::Pression is now called Zydeco. Moops had a memorable name, and I think the naming really helped it gain a following. MooX::Pression was just meh. So now it’s Zydeco. Zydeco…
The test suite for MooX::Pression used to run in 79 seconds on my laptop. Now it’s at 10 seconds. And no, I didn’t cut out any tests â€” I switched from using Keyword::Declare to a combination of Keyword::Simple and PPR….
