in reply to The perlmonks.org server downtime has made me:

The downtime didn't bother me that much. What really bothered me is that my personal computer blew a power supply and I'm also suspecting that the mobo went as well.

My perl needs were satisfied with me reading Learning Perl: 3rd ed. For some reason I can't seem to see how the authors made the exercises in the book one-line programs. My perl files are at least 10 lines long (but they have a nice formatting style for maintainence).

Update 2/11: Over the weekend, I dusted off an old AMD K6-2 system and got Linux working on it and got a Lucent Winmodem (Linmodem) working as well. I went ahead and downloaded LWP and the Tk modules so I have something to play with if I'm bored.

    I think PM's downtime is directly related to an alignment of the planets (hear me out), because in the same area of time (I'm not stretching NO) it snowed 5 inches in Texas, AND PM had some downtime.... ok so the snow happened a week after the PM downtime, but I think that's near enough to call it some sort of cosmic aftershock.

    But anyway, while PM was down I read a lot... I cought up on some webdesign projects I had been slacking on (*eyes the Flash 5 icon angrily*) and did my homework early, and I listened to music. Oh yeah and I played in the snow!

    work it harder make it better do it faster makes us stronger more than ever hour after our work is never over.
