Submission + - Rakudo Star - "early adopter" Perl 6, released-> 4

masak writes: The developers of Rakudo, an actively developed implementation of Perl 6, give you their first "Rakudo Star" release. Quoting the announcement: 'These "Star" releases are intended to make Perl 6 more widely available to programmers, grow the Perl 6 codebase, and gain additional end-user feedback about the Perl 6 language and Rakudo's implementation of it.' It's been a long wait, and not everything is in place yet, but Perl 6 is definitely feeling less vapor-y today.

Submission + - The Smiley-Free Day->

jani writes: The Arthur Dent Appreciation Society started a new tradition on January 1st, the smiley-free Thursday.

The idea is that people should use the written word more, and emoticons less, and that Thursday is the day to do it every week. The movement is gaining ground internationally, even though Google and Wikipedia haven't caught up yet.

I've joined in, and I'm doing my best to not use smileys when sending e-mail, chatting, or sending SMS-es. Why don't you, too?
