As heard on IRC, so it must be true:

It's Italian research into the effect of eating Pizza once a week on cancer. And Pizza is good for your health it seems.

Being Italian research it can't possibly be biased. No way.

I've been hacking most of the time today on my mkjournal script. It's just about everything I've ever intended it to be now, very pretty output, and everything is now linked together far better, even the front page date headings now point to the permanent link in the archive of the corresponding entry.

The mkjournal script itself is getting slightly annoying I think, it's about 200 lines of code, and Perl does seem to get unwieldy at some point. In ESRs fine article "Why Python?" he sets the limit for Perl scripts around 100 lines. I tend to agree more and more, and I'm probably going to learn Python or maybe Ruby someday, the latter looking incredibly sweet. Python just has more momentum as it is now, and it's not really likely to change.
