Perl is alive!

Last time I checked Slashdot still runs on perl...

My company does too.

Now that ActiveState is providing Perl for Cloudfoundry, it's going to be good times in Perl land.

fragermk (96318) writes "An Open Letter To Steve Jobs: Please Build The Missing Mac has been getting a lot of attention and positive response from Digg. Is there a missing Mac? If Apple was to release a regular, affordable, desktop Macintosh would it have the potential to expand the user base for the OS X operating system? It would include: a dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM and a PCI-Express 16x slot. Price: $600 — $1200. No monitor. With 10.5 soon to be released it's time for Apple to take the consumer savvy they've developed with the iPod and go after the business and geek market for computers now split between HP, Dell and Lenovo."

I sent Steve Jobs this letter."
