When I entered the Internet in 1995, I suddenly needed a nick for IRC chat and so on. Since I used to play a lot of Blues and Rock on my favourite electric guitar (a black and white Fender Stratocaster), the first nickname that popped up into my mind was Strat. I still have got the guitar, but hardly play any more, because I recently (=1998) found out that perl is by far the better "game". So the nick is alive, while the reason for it nearly is dead... (Update: I started playing the guitar again...)

I am fond of statistics somehow :-)

Sorry for my bad English, for I'm not a native speaker; but I will go on learning :-)

[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: I hope you had a good weekend!
[Discipulus]: good morning again monks!
[choroba]: Good morning!
[Corion]: I have a rough plan to release an ImageNet classifier in Perl (well, using pretrained data, but still a nice toy)
Discipulus is going mad with the new win10 client.. tried mv Cortana /dev/null but no succes
[Corion]: Ouch - another pretrained set is available, using images from IMDB and Wikipedia. So I expect interesting results for non-PR images where people are pictured that are not made up
