Dear commenters and emailers and tweeters: All right already. I suppressed the weekly tweet-blobs from the Atom feed.
To be honest, I’d been dodging that issue because I try to avoid opening up the 2549-line Perlsplodge that mutters darkly in this publication’s engine room. But once I lashed my brain into actually thinking about the problem, the fix was a one-liner. I try not to see the publishing system as 2,549 one-liners.
I’ll think about John Cowan’s remarks urging me to tone down the typography. And also I should suppress from the tweets which are just me saying “New blog post.”
And I really shouldn’t diss that Perl code. It’s been in production for six years and runs fast and doesn’t crash; and when I really need to change something, it’s usually less work than I fear.
