How could I miss this thread? Thanks to demerphq for mentioning that in this sig.
stefan k is pretty obvious: first name SPC abbrev last name (kamphausen, as you can pretty well gues from my Location and signature).

Still there is somewhat of a story.

I've been nicked 'kampi' for many years (my memory goes back to my 5th year in school; it must have been invented by whoknows in those days) and I am known by that name to several communities (like e.g. freshmeat, It was just a few days before I came across PM that I met some australian person and was told that 'campy' (which is the obvious english pronounciation of kampi) or 'camp' is slang for homosexual or at least behaving that way. Disclaimer: I am not in any way against homosexuals ... it's just that I ain't one ;-)
Then I thought about it and said: well, just pronounce it correctly: cum-pee ... uhm ... yeah ... That wasn't a hit, too ;-)

So I was just in the process of generatin a new nick when I came here first and thus took a simple adaption of my real name. Now I use 'ska' (which takes the real name, too, but makes something better from it) as my username on my home machine but I need one or two more syllables before I got a good nick.

Thanks for listening :)

Regards... Stefan

[LanX]: It seems that PHP's official docs use "closure" and "anonymous function" interchangeably, even though their closures don't capture surrounding state without using the 'use' language construct.
LanX explains much cargo bla ...
[Eily]: what? I thought PHP was known for its reliable and consistent behaviour and documentation!
[LanX]: ... and a lot of pseudo Perl experts
[Eily]: though honestly, I'm sure I have seen people use closure to mean anonysub for perl as well
[stonecolddevin]: good morning friends
[LanX]: yes, mainly pseudo Perl experts
[Eily]: good morning stonecolddevin
LanX has to go/
[Eily]: bye LanX
