Yesterday I broke some of the scripts that run this site and the news service I created when I upgraded Perl to 5.8. A good excuse to start hacking on the new Publish-Subscribe proposal.
I've gotten exited about the new proposal and installed the experimental pubsub component from jabberstudio. As before, my first application is the mood stuff on this site. Creating nodes and setting permissions is something I still do manually, so I need to make a tool for that. But I've updated the mood monitor in the download section for jabber bots and the set mood script. Works like a charm.
