book [May. 22nd, 2002|07:29 pm]

[Tags|, ]

After fully absorbing my mod_perl books, I'm craving a new tech book.

My goal lately is to increase my Perl skills a ton. I've been doing some rad shit lately, and it's like a whole new world. I'd been getting bored with Perl a bit, but it was just because I'd stopped learning.

Off to the bookstore, then seeing Star Wars with Nick.

Mastering Regular Expressions is a great book. Not strictly perl related, but there's just something about a finely crafted regex... ;)

It's more efficient to shake a reference to a hash.

Re:

Well I was thinking a hash is a set, and since O'reilly has a set of books it kinda made sense.

Either way, I'm NOT going on my comedy tour this summer. :)

That's not fair! I'm from New England you know! Even though I don't live there anymore, you should be more mindful of who you're talking to. I could get really offended, what with my irrepairable stuttering syndrome and all. Hhhhhhhhhhhave you no shame?!

You shouldn't learn more. Then I have that much more to catch up to. (wow, that sentence sounds really bad)
