Thomas Klausner domm

Just in case you like to know, I'm currently full-time father of 2 nearly grown-up sons, half-time Perl hacker, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, cook, taker-of-pictures and 40+ years old but too lazy to update my profile once a year.

I'm also head of Vienna.pm, member of the TPF Grants Commitee and the YAPC Europe Foundation and previous maintainer of the CPANTS project.

I've got stuff on CPAN, held various talks and organise the Austrian Perl Workshops and YAPC::Europe 2007.

Kate Tempest eröffnet mit einem der besten Lieder dieses Jahres, wenn auch nicht sehr zuversichtlich: Europe is Lost (1), "America lost, London lost .. here in the land where nobody gives a fuck". Common schreibt einen Letter to the Free (2) hoffend auf Freedom, aber weil "now you wanna trump me" werden wohl noch länger "won't be long" singen ...

23.12.2016: Announcing Plack::Middleware::PrettyException

In the last few days I extracted some code buried in our interal Tools-repo into a distinct distribution. I added some tests and documentation, and a few hours ago Plack::Middleware::PrettyException hit CPAN. Plack::Middleware::PrettyException allows you to use exceptions in your models (and also controllers, but they should be kept slim!) and ...

13.09.2016: Too dumb for TCP

It seems I'm too dumb for handling raw TCP. Please, dear Internet, teach me what I'm doing wrong! What I'm trying to do I want to send some data to Telegraf via TCP. So I open a socket and send the data. All is well, until Telegraf is restarted, thus losing the connection to the sending script. So I want to catch the lost connection, reconnect, ...
