...should we...continue to accept his {Tye's} caprice over...the Monastery?

Yes: {X}; No: { }; Don't know: { }; Don't care: { }

My advice to you is to give up, move on, and put in effort elsewhere. If you have not done so already, I suggest that you get a Stack Exchange account and check out their Stack Overflow, Programmers, and Computer Science sites. I believe you will be happier there.

My experience causes me to hypothesize that it is rare for organizational entities with a significant history to have successful directed transformations. Instead, much more often, evolutionary leaps happen when a new thing comes along and renders the prior thing obsolete. Thus, I predict that whatever complaints you have about this place now, you will continue to have them for the next decade if you remain.

[kcott]: s/imput/input/
[Corion]: DateTime::Duration ? Personally,I convert stuff to seconds using Time::Piece or Time::Local and then add the seconds and then use POSIX::strftime to print them as hours again
[marto]: good morning all, TCIF
[gnosti]: I'm reading from ffmpeg lengths of video clips in H:M:S and needing to add them and format them back to H:M:S for feeding back to ffmpeg
[marioroy]: kcott Thanks
[Corion]: gnosti: I would cheat and use my approach instead of dealing with durations as objects, or a module
[Corion]: You could even do the calculation directly - my $duration = $H * 3600+ $M*60 + $S; strftime '%H:%M:%S', timelocal($duratio n)
[Corion]: (and that strftime call is largely superfluous too, converting back to H:M:S isn't hard either)
