Hi there!

it seems it is vacation time for many of the authors as the number of posts is smaller than usual.

Enjoy your vacation and remember if you can get vaccinated and in any case, even if you are already vaccinated and even if your country/state/city does not require you to put on a mask, put it on when among people! It is just a small piece of fabric and it might save the life of some other person.

Sure, you might not be contagious, but by having a mask on you also encourage others to put on their mask.

Enjoy your time here!

Privacy and speed with Perl's Object::Pad

by Mark Gardner

I have to admit I've never encountered a project where the speed problems were caused by the selected OOP system or just by using OOP and not functions. In my experience the database, algorithmic complexity, or using the disk instead of the memory always have a lot bigger impact on speed. So I think we agree with Mark. Cleaner code is (usually) more important than faster code.
