  1. DBD::mysql on Leopard with _mysql_init errors

    I had problems getting the perl DBD::mysql module working. Here’s how I made it happy.

  2. Wholly deserved demise

    John Sergeant quitting ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ is the main news in the UK today. Save us.

    Upstairs. Noticed the computer downstairs was online. Wondered why. Realised it woke itself up to record 'The Daily Show'. Clever thing.

    @plasticbagUK I fear I'm way too locked in to actually make the switch -- many blogs and many, many templates -- but nngghhhh....

    Idly wondering about entirely ditching Movable Type for WordPress just so I never, ever have to wrestle with Perl again.

    How can it still be this hard to get DBD::mysql working on a Mac. "Symbol not found: _mysql_init" Why's it always so hard?

    Haven't felt 100% for a couple of weeks now: groggy with sore throat. DESPITE new shoes. Weird.
