Ask and you shall receive it seems. The commenters have arrived with some great comments. And (possibly this is connected), yesterday was my first 200+ day since my 7 month hiatus. I even got some referrals from planet perl due to Gabor mentioning my post on his [aggregated blog].
Foo pointed out that I haven’t got my tone quite right for irony. Any suggestions how to do that better without being too obvious?
And in another comment, Gabor has given me an idea for my next post – which Emacs features I’d need to switch to Padre.
Overall, I’m very pleased.
