John R. MacArthur : French Toast

"In the United States, capitalism has become the raison d'Ítre of the elites; in France, it seems to be only a means to an end -- living better than the competition and maybe converting a few foreigners to their way of life."

Bill Evans : boycott-riaa.com

"The RIAA is a professional lobby organization of recording labels of which five labels control 90%of the music distributed in the US. In 1999 these so called "protectors" of the music industry and musicains released only 2600 cds. In the first 4 months of 2000 Napster signed up 17,000 new artists. I have no idea how many are on MP3.Com Excellent artists are being ignored, and discouraged by the music industry. In short, I'm forced to use MP3.Com and Napster if I want to hear new music, or artists. My comment to the "Big 5" is you made your bed, now lie in it." Meanwhile, in other Napster news, if you've been itching to download MP3s from your IRC client, napyrc is the answer to your dreams.

Dave Cross : Sub::Approx.pm

"allows you to call functions by _approximate_ names. Why you would ever want to do this is a complete mystery to me. ... I can't stress too strongly that this will make your code completely unmaintainable and you really shouldn't use this module unless you're doing something very stupid." Combined with mod_speling and mod_perl, this guarantees to bring a whole new level of excitement and possibilities to the burgeoning field of web applications!
