<japhy> wow. ann arbor MUGGY? I've never heard of such a thing ;)


Monks I met at yapc::NA::2001:

chipmunk - cogent - erudil - japhy - turnstep
mrmick - nate - dominus - da - rrwo - andreychek

You can view a few pictures of (most of) us.


While I was reading a tutorial the other day, the conversation in the chatbox reminded me why I like this place so much. The excerpt (reprinted with kind permission from chipmunk, Stamp_Guy, and OeufMayo) is a great example of how knowledgeable and helpful monks can be:

<Stamp_Guy> Could someone give me a regex that strips off a path name and the extension on a file?
<OeufMayo> Oh, you mean File::Basename?
<chipmunk> Stamp_Guy: s/(.*)/use File::Basename; @parts = fileparse($1); $1/e ;)
<Oeufmayo> chipmunk++
<Stamp_Guy> Does that come preinstalled with Perl?
<chipmunk> Stamp_Guy: yes indeedy!
<OeufMayo> yes it does!

Now that's what I like to see-- a monk asks a question, the response to which could have led him in the wrong direction. The correct answer (don't roll your own, use CPAN!) was immediately given, and by more than one monk!
