+ - Perl is Undead!

Ptolemarch writes: At the Yet Another Perl Conference beginning today in Orlando, the first keynote squarely blamed Slashdot for starting the "Perl is Dead" meme in 2005. He couldn't find the exact story he was thinking of, and, you know, neither can I, but let's be clear: if Perl was ever dead, it must now be undead. If you can't be at YAPC, you can still watch it live.

+ - Wicked Lasers Sells One-Watt Green Laser->

cogent writes: "Wicked Lasers, famous for last year's 1000mW handheld blue laser, and infamous for its handling of six-month-long backorders, is now selling a green version. There are three power levels, each priced at $1/mW. Since the eye is far more sensitive to green than to blue, this is pretty much the state of the art in putting-dots-on-stuff technology. Wicked Lasers sent out an email, promising to handle backorders much better this time."
