01:26 genio I'm still trying to get the linux-y bits of Win10 going
02:01 genio They did NOT make this a simple process.
02:01 genio or a well documented one
02:17 genio So, about 2 hours of this attempt and I'm ready to give up.  MS--
02:19 jberger fwiw, it is brand spanking new and certainly dev quality
02:19 jberger they said that at the top
02:21 genio You have to turn on the insider program, 2 reboots.  turn on optional "fast" updates from MS update area, 2 more reboots.  install the insider app, yet another reboot. keep waiting for the update to windows. that won't show up no matter what you do or what the docs say.  so you can't install the subsystem feature at all yet.
02:30 genio apparently there's no set time on how long it takes for the preview version of win10 to become available.  I'll just have to be patient.
02:31 jberger genio++ # trying
03:04 genio I'd have to fix up http_trans.c and http_trans.h to use winsock.h instead of sys/socket.h for a true windows version of GHTTP.  at that point, I'm going a bit further than intended on making LWP::Protocol::GHTTP testable
11:43 plicease I've never understood why windows needs to reboot so frequently.
11:45 plicease I think this
11:45 plicease http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/7012ce82-fc98-11e5-afa0-b8731a3aab14
11:46 plicease is because AB isn't able to download the index file with FTP
11:46 plicease we should have a better error message than that.
13:50 genio Yea, I was going to ask about that one.  But, all in all, much more green on 0.002
15:28 plicease yes.  If there is a network issue there really isn't any way to recover from that.
15:28 plicease but it should say "hey this is a network issue"
15:29 plicease I need to confirm.  FTP doesn't work from the wireless at $work so I can test my theory when I get a chance.
