So, the blog engine is now to such a state that the articles actually show up on the page. Now, as you might point out, I could have done that with a plain ol’ HTML file. And you’d be right. But it does have a RDBMS backend. And it has a Perl front end. And therefore it’s showing promise.

All the perl code is just hack to make sure the module would talk to the database. I have these grand visions of writing my own templating engine. (Doesn’t everyone?) Except that mine will be more of a perl IDE than anything else. But there you go.

Suzette and I started house hunting today. It’s somewhat amazing to be shopping for something that is in the half-million dollar price range. Ah well.
