Thank you!

I am embarassed to say how long I tried to figure out why the heck Perl could not find a file in the same directory as my script. I wasn't executing the script from the script's directory! Was typing in the whole path to the script and everything. duh! I'm fairly new, but even I know better than that. Thank you for pointing out the (much needed) obvious.

If you were in the same room I would hug you.

[1nickt]: ( The 17" monster I just bought is for my wife, who doesn;t leave the house with it...)
[Corion]: 1nickt: No, I'm using it with Windows 10, but with the 4k display, yes. It's a very nice build IMO, and relatively sturdy. Also, it got 8 or 9 on the ifixit repair scale, which I consider good
[Corion]: ... especially as I expect to have to replace the battery set in two or three years' time
[1nickt]: Nice. So happy that Dells are still user-repairable. Unusual these days.
[1nickt]: I will certainly not be buying any more Macs.
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, or at least, I hopoe so ;)
