SPOPS ideas

Work work work. Since $COMPANY let some folks go I have to do icky HTML layout for a redesign. On the upside, new versions of OpenInteract and SPOPS are coming out soon, since the installation I did this weekend hasn't blown up yet :-) One of the mailing list folks has been doing a ton of work to make object linking and inheritance easier, which is excellent.

dmerrill: Instead of using Pg.pm, try DBI and DBD::Pg. They're quite simple to use and not as tied to the PostgreSQL API as Pg.pm. There are also wrappers to make things even simpler and object-oriented (and better tasting!) such as <plug> SPOPS, which works just fine with Postgres. Email me for more info if you're interested.
