"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
What lets you be productive.

I spent half the day playing with Log::Dispatch and the other half fighting with CGI::Application, which I don't recall requiring any work to make work at all when I started writing Archivist last year.

Log::Dispatch is super cool, though. I think I'll be playing with substianating several objects for different log levels so I can log to different places (since I'm probably just going to be logging to files for the time being). L::D::File::Timestamped is kind of confusing, though. I can't think of many situations where you'd want to write to $file-$timestamp, which is really not what I thought it would do. :)

Tomorrow is finishing CGI::App, Sessions, and starting up with Net::SNMP!
