Code Healing

I just got the motivation to go touch PSMail (my perl-based mail client), started to dig into the code, and realised, that the code is quite bad, it being something I wrote when I was just learning Perl. Unlike a few quick changes I've done to it in the past, this will require me to rework a few bits, and the best way to do that is to rewrite big chunks of it. As basic email functionality is pretty easy (at least, given the set of modules Perl provides), this is will be fun.

I got into the Hitchcock class I wanted to - hopefully a friend of mine who was also on the waiting list got in too. I hope the Roguelike class will come together too..

I find it mildly creepy and mildly cool that a number of the websites I visit greet me by name (thanks to cookies) when I visit.
