Once more, the Ottawa Perl Mongers assemble! I’ll be presenting on how I’m implementing AJAX forms in a Catalyst application, using the deadly magic of Mason, Prototype, and FormFu. Pizza will be graciously provided by Pythian. So if you plan on coming, please let me know so that I can be a good little ninja and make the number of slices match the number of attendees.
Good morning and happy Friday to all. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends, family, acquaintances, and well-wishers in the US. Enjoy the turkey and the football. As always, there’s not shortage of news stories, though the week seemed a bit slow because of the holiday. Here are some things we thought were interesting this week.
I had an opportunity over the past few days to attempt to use Microsoft’s Server Management Objects (SMO) with Perl to manage a SQL Server 2005 DB. To make a long story into a short post, I blundered into the Win32::CLR module on CPAN, a little gem from Toshiyuki Yamato. Here is all you need to get started.
Is it Friday already? Where has the week gone? Whatever, we’ve got lots of good news tidbits for you this week, including several follow-ups to previous stories. Enough jaw-jacking, let’s get to the news.
Today, I had a spare Fedora 11 machine sitting next to me, so I thought I’d try the upgrade to the newly-released Fedora 12, aka “Constantine.” Fedora support cycles are rather short compared to Ubuntu, so Fedora 11 will likely be de-supported in 6 to 7 months. Following the Fedora documentation, I decided to use the “preupgrade” tool. Everything was going smoothly until the machine restarted to begin installation of the new packages. I got a message that there wasn’t enough space in my /boot partition. Turns out that this is a known problem with the preupgrade tool. A kind soul in #fedora on IRC directed me to the list of common Fedora 12 bugs, in particular the preupgrade free space check. I strongly suggest you visit the links provided for helpful screenshots and commands to follow.
Like good day and welcome to issue 6 eh. This is another light one as it’s been another busy week. I have not had any time of my own to crawl through the news, but luckily my cohort Bill has flagged some good stuff for this week. Let’s get to it.
That’s right — get your free 10-day trial! All the information I know is here. The basics are: No access to Rough Cuts or Downloads, for new subscribers only. It’s one of those “sign up and if you do not cancel after 10 days, we bill you” — and at $42.99 a month, that’s not a mistake you want to make. Must sign up by Nov. 24th.
Hi all, and welcome back to blogrotate. It’s been a busy week here at Pythian which reduced the amount of time I had for cruising the news, so this weeks edition will be a short one. Here’s a few of the stories that tweaked our interest this week.
Welcome to the all hallowed eve eve edition of Blogrotate. It was a relatively quiet week this week but the 2 standouts are from the OS department with more reviews of the just released Windows 7 and the release of Ubuntu 9.10. Here’s some of the stories that we took note of this week.
Welcome to volume 3 of Blogrotate. This is a short one this week, which is mostly dominated by the release of Windows 7. I have not had a chance to use it as yet but intend to give it a once over as soon as I get a chance. So, without further ado, on to the roundup.
