Holy Hell. I've just had a gander at this introduction to Maypole and its follow-up, a Perl MVC module that uses Template::Toolkit and Class::DBI, and which makes everything Java-based I'm coding in look like the Encylopaedia Britannica. Got a project I've started that is replicating just about everything here (Model, User sessions, templates, etc) and I really want to switch it over.
Perl modules still excite me way too much. Woo, still a geek!
