in thread Think Perl 6 (new book)

stevieb, for someone throwing around terms like "uneducated" and "asinine" you sure opine a lot about things you don't know (when you're not tooting own your horn). For example, the Perl job market. There are four companies with large Perl codebases in SoCal alone just in the industry I work in that are hiring new devs all the time.

The problem with "Perl6" is not that it's a new language, it's that it stole the name and reputation of an existing language. The goldrush of publishers, authors, conference presenters and self-promoting bandwagon jumpers seeking to exploit that *does* hurt Perl, by creating confusion in the minds of tech generalists and newcomers. To believe anything else is just, well, asinine.

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    I'm annoyed now. You speak of SoCal. My daughter lives there, and realistically, as documented recently (here's one mention (I haven't researched the researcher, but it's common knowledge across the board) that even six-figure incomes are beginning to be known as "low income".

    I refuse to get into a discussion on living arrangements, but stating there's a position there (socal) by mentioning four places without any names, doesn't build credibility.

    Please explain what the requisites are for the positions at these four locations. What's the pay scale? What is the cost of living?

    I know asinine. I do my homework. As I said previously, I believe you to be an intelligent person all-around, but I feel you're focused on something that isn't yours. You're focused so hard on it that perhaps if you didn't have your current position, you might find yourself out in the cold.

    You mean how Larry Wall stole it from Larry Wall?

[marto]: better: "If a type of behaviour, event, or situation is par for the course, it is not good but it is normal or as you would expect"
[Discipulus]: thanks i was unable to decide where to split the sentece
[marto]: FWIW search.cpan rarely has issues, see http://noc.perl. org for a route to report problems
[oakbox]: thanks, marto.
[marto]: there was a period where search.cpan had some frequent outages for (IIRC) a couple of weeks. I've not had any problems since, until today.
[marto]: this was about 16 months ago maybe. the noc team are, in my experience, very responsive to reports of issues, so please raise the issue after checking known problems/outages
