Christopher Cashell writes "There's an effort to build a new cross-platform Shadowrun MMO. They're planning on supporting all the major platforms, including Linux. They're planning two models, a purchase and play model, or a free-to-play model, depending on what you're looking for. Considering this along with the in-development (non-MMO) Shadowrun computer game, and it seems like we're seeing a bit of a resurgence in Shadowrun."

Christopher Cashell writes "As noted on Perlbuzz, Mark Jason Dominus's amazing book, Higher-Order Perl, is now available for free download. This is a great book that goes way beyond your normal programming reference. This will change the way you look at programs, and make you a better programmer in any language. It sits on that special shelf reserved for books like Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, The C Programming Language, and The Practice of Programming."
