I was surprised to see that I am going, and apparently giving a presentation! Oh wait, no, that is not me. That is another David Evans. A quick search pulled […]

    This will be yet another entertaining dive into installing software on OSX. For today’s task, I want to install the Perl WebService::Technorati API interface to the Technorati blog search / aggregation site. Usually, I do something like $ perl -MCPAN -e shell to get a CPAN shell, and then install WebService::Technorati and hit “yes” when […]

  • Chasen on OSX 10.4

    I found myself needing to do some Japanese morphological analysis today, which usually means either Chasen or Kabocha. Kabocha is supposed to be the new hottness, running fast, but a quick search didn’t turn up any precompiled packages for it on OSX. ChaSen, on the other hand, is available in DarwinPorts, but since I went […]
