Back at work once more.

Had an interesting discussion on the CLUG mailing list about whether it is possible to have an GNU indent like program for Perl. It seems that there is really nothing out there that does this at the moment. This would seem to be because parsing Perl is a bit of a bastard. Oh well, I will just have to learn the emacs indenting style for Perl and be done with it I suppose.

I’m wondering if it is time to move this site to a real database in the backend. I think that file I/O might be making the generation of the indexes quite slow — 18 seconds it is currently running at on my development machine. There are currently 2126 records (files) in the database…

Finished off my maths assignment and handed it in (finally).
