I am now connected to more than a million people through Orkut. This is quite odd, since I'm only directly linked to ten of those, and out of those ten, I've only met eight of them in real life...

The list of the top 500 supercomputer sites for June 2004 is out. The IBM blade kit at work comes in at 201st fastest in the world, 16th in the UK. Woo! :-)

Net::Amazon is a perl module to interface to Amazon's web services API. Unfortunately it doesn't like using a web proxy. You can fix this by modifying Amazon.pm line 262:

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(env_proxy => (exists $self->{env_proxy} ? $self->{env_proxy} : 0));

(Yeah, it's a bit ugly, but it works!)

Update: The module's auther has included an equivalent fix in the next version (0.25). I love open source.
