This is an essential bit of kit if you want your perl applications to run properly in Middle Earth.


Example usage:
    use DateTime::Fiction::JRRTolkien::Shire;

    # Constructors
    my $shire = DateTime::Fiction::JRRTolkien::Shire->new(year => 1419,
    month => 'Rethe',
    day => 25);

    # Accessors
    $year = $shire->year;
    $month = $shire->month; # 1 - 12, or 0 on a holiday
    $month_name = $shire->month_name;
    $day = $shire->day; # 1 - 30, or 0 on a holiday

    $dow = $shire->day_of_week; # 1 - 7, or 0 on certain holidays
    $day_name = $shire->day_name;

    $holiday = $shire->holiday;
    $holiday_name = $shire->holiday_name;

    $leap = $shire->is_leap_year;

Just set this up yesterday, rather than my previous configuration of Exim with a SpamAssassin router. It means I can now use a simple grep on the exim log file to see the ratio of spam (and other unwanted stuff like virii) to genuine mail.

And the results (since the logfile was last rolled over just under five hours ago) are:


[04:45:48 root]$ grep Completed mainlog | wc -l
107
[space-monster:/var/log/exim]
[04:48:01 root]$ grep rejected mainlog | wc -l
11871
[space-monster:/var/log/exim]
[04:48:05 root]$ grep Rejected mainlog | wc -l
3197


Which is to say, 11871 junk, 3197 of which were viruses, 107 legitimate mails.

Welcome to the internets.

Nice example of Drupal theming.
Done in 5 days just to show what sort of things are possible.

We wanted to meet some of our users, but just the 4 of us wouldn't be enough of an incentive, so an open bar was necessary -- Wired even offered to pick up the tab.

I don't even remember who suggested it at the marketing meeting, but when they turned to me and asked if a free beer tour sounded like a good idea, my response ("Yes!") came quickly and emphatically. And thus drankkit was born.
