Article Roundup

From HowtoForge, Speeding Up Perl Scripts With SpeedyCGI On Debian Etch (a great site, BTW). Simpler and with fewer features than mod_perl, but good for running legacy Perl CGI scripts faster.

Here is a presentation on the new regex engine in coming in Perl 5.10.

From C. Titus Brown, a blog post on writing Python code that doesn't suck. Most of it applies to any language. This interested me because as a Perl coder, I'm constantly dealing with the tired "Perl code is soooo hard to read...but Python, on the other hand...". Really, you can write sucky code in any language.

Linux.com gives us Implementing Quotas to Restrict Disk Space Usage.

Apparently, OpenOffice is a hit on WalMart PC's.

The Simple Dollar gives us 30 Essential Pieces Of Free (and Open) Software for Windows. Missing were Cygwin and WinSCP - the first things I install on any Windows box I get stuck at.
