Two adjacent monks in Saints in our Book
with identical number of Writeups!
Never seen that before.
planetscape, after more than ten long years
at the monastery, we wind up together on 1282 posts apiece,
at least for a little while.
I'm very happy about that because I've always enjoyed
your thoughtful and insightful posts.
Update: July 08 2015, exactly level now, both XP and Writeups! :)
Those are the dates on which the N-hundred-thousanth node was posted; and the number of days to accumulate that 100,000 posts.
Today we will likely reach 1,130,000. It will have taken 275 days to do so. projecting forward, 275 / 3 * 10 = 917 means it will be another 2 years before this place reaches the next 100,000 milestone.
It took 25% more days to accumulate the 11th 100,000 than it did the tenth.
Based on the projection, it will take 32% longer for the 12th than it did the 11th.
And projecting that rate of decline forward means that we won't reach the 13th milestone until September 2020.
You don't want to know about the one after that; because it won't happen.
There are 2 choices
Open our minds. Invite new blood. Fight to retain (or even return) old blood.
Continue as we are; cloistered in our declining; deteriorating; smug little world.
Your choice guys. I've tried to liven this place up. Posted what I hoped would be interesting questions. Proposed change. Taken the insults.
Now its down to the rest of you. Hide in the shadows pouring scorn and derision upon any and every suggestion. Or stand up and be counted.

About once a week( sometimes more ) I see a question that is immediately answered as '...this is off topic, and you should ask on another forum...' which is technically correct.
So why not have an 'OT' section?
I have a lot of respect for the members of this forum, and not so much for other forums. If I see a comment about *nix, JS, HTML, etc., as part of an answer about Perl, I often find that response to be true and a valuable asset to my programming knowledge base.
The OT section should have some relation to Perl, but I would much rather test ideas and comments from this forum, then rely on the *comments* from other forums.
There is a wealth of real world knowledge from the Monks on PerlMonks.org, that just can't be duplicated on other forums.
What do you think?

Does anyone know how to see the non answered questions? Every now and then I see non answered questions, I can be observing the portal 24/7 but I always welcome to see new ideas on how to use Perl. Most of the time this happens through non answered questions. So does anyone know if there is an option to activate it?
Thanks in advance for your time and effort.

Someone has been repeatedly asking for my password. I am going to assume it's a mistake, but please stop!
UPDATE: I was hoping that whomever was trying for the password would read this, then realize that they were in fact using the wrong "username"
I suggest that the default style sheet be changed to add line numbers to code listings. I've had that set up on my style sheet for quite some time now, and find it pretty convenient.
We frequently have people give us chunks of code and associated error messages whose line numbers don't match the code. Sometimes the querants will annotate their code with a comment telling which line is which. I'm thinking that if they are able to see the line numbers, it may encourage some of the posters to tie the line numbers and error messages together better, possibly reducing one round of questions.
Logged-in users can now apply a css stylesheet to nodes rendered using the 'bare' display style. To do so, go to your Display Settings, and look for the text field labeled "Link to External CSS stylesheet for 'bare' display style:", near the bottom. Only "external" css is supported in this way; the text field's value must be a URL for a page of css.
For starters, here is some simple css which makes it easier to see the tree structure of replies and to distinguish one reply from another:
