"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
Good tools are hard to find.

mdxi wrote a really useful little tool ages ago called the Moron Filename Normalizer, which as you might guess takes stupidly named files and makes them less stupid, recursively.

I was cleaning up some trees this morning and complained to #tildedot that mdxi seems to have removed the dist from his site. rjbs was all like "Yo bitch it be on da CPAN and shizzle", to which I replied "Yeah, the Perl module." "And the script, whiteboy."

So, yay. String::MFN, a way to keep mfn updated across all the hosts I use it on (which is quite a few).
