As per Re: Return of the Confessional, now that I have reached 10,000xp I will only be logging in as me to do my pmdev,qandaeditors duties, nothing more (short of maybe replying to any replies that crop up to my old post, which i'm not sure i'll do).

I'm really becoming fond of saying please read site how to, The Old Perl Monks FAQ, What makes a bad question?, Before You Post ..., How (Not) To Ask A Question, How to RTFM, and How to ask questions the smart way

You wanna write your own pod translator, you should only use Pod::Tree and only need Pod::Tree dump for the stealing, even if you choose to simply walk the tree (or maybe Pod::Simple, which is shaping up to be quite nice).

I keep looking this up perl -MActivePerl::DocTools -e ActivePerl::DocTools::WriteTOC();

Crazy's Thought Of The Day
SCSI Bus Reset Update ~ found it by accident, seems like the cure for what's ailing me

Sat Jul 6 11:09:01 2002 ~ Installing linux again, and so far, I absolutely despize Debian (piece of shit). Its worse to configure than RedHat. I'm falling in love with Mandrake (and i'm talking as a "desktop" system).

man this cd kicks ass!!!!

Say what? ~ I have come to the conclusion that there is waaay too many people who cannot comprehend simple english. So from now on I will cease to clarify myself, so stop asking (I can only simplify things so much: fire bad, beer good.)

The only book I ever endorsed is Computer Networks and Internets.

I have become aware through my stumblings about the internet, a growing trend: people create download mirrors, and mangle the url to hide that fact from you, stopping you from using the oh so familiar save-as feature ... i'm not opposed to mirrors, but why make the damn url look like a direct link????? damn idiots!! And what's more, more and more big sites like are beginning to suck

Some time passsed, and I met merlyn, dws, and the wallrus ;)(btw - now I use AbiWord exclusively)

I wen't to a usenix BoF on Thursday Nov 08 2001, met Vynce and blakem.

On October 31, 2001, All Hallows Eve, at 7:30am sharp, I will officially become became an American Citizen (btw - one with wheels ;D).
US Naturalization Test (Monday, September 17, 2001) I passed - however, the INS still has to do a background check on me (again). I also learned that even though I am registered for selective service, if the US goes to war, and there is a draft, all "new" citizens since August, 2001, would be the 1st group to be put through the draft lotto. That is kinda serious.

If you're ever in need of a suite at a fully booked hotel, just ask the clerk this:

you: "Well if the president of *insert country here* showed up you'd find him a room."

clerk: "Well ofcourse, he's the president."

you: "And, is the president here today?"

clerk: "No sir, he is not."

you: "Well then give me his room ;)"

Damn, I still always confuse davorg with mirod when remembering things mirod says I think it was called the perlmonks threaded interface or something, but it was a CGI thingie, so even if you used it the s‎crip‎t was on my machine. I tried using Google but I can't find it I'll try to rewrite it
mirod says no, I have lost everything in the crash (and I feel so dumb for it :--( I could try rewriting it though, I am away from home and I have a little time locked in my hotel room this week
