    I wonder what this poll has to do with Perl ?
      Well, don't you have perl installed on all of them???

      #!/home/bbq/bin/perl
      # Trust no1!
        Sure, but I still don't see the reason.
        2 of my 3 have perl. The laptop blows, so I never use it ... hence, no perl - ( laughs ).

    If only this question had been asked last month before I cleaned out the old machines (a move is coming soon). :-(
    ...suffering from 'lack of computers' envy...

    Hmmm...

    If my third computer is separated out into four bits, how do I count that?

    If I hack into a website and change their webpage, do I indeed "own" it?

inclusive?

      Oh man... what was I thinking? I forgot the PDT! (personal digital toy) I wonder if I should have counted the cell phone? It has a computer in it. Hmmm....
        oh yeah, the celly-telly def. counts. What about my robot assistant? He has a seperate computer to control the eye-beam lazer-tazers and flame thrower, so would he be, like, 2 computers?

        the real question, of course, is whether I can, in good faith, count my bionic hip.

        The Autonomic Pilot; it's FunkyTown, babe.

        Or the dishwasher, or the brand new car, or the nintendo game, or...

        /wonko : P

      I counted my brain... (they didn't say WORKING computers.)

    Does "own" mean plugged in and running?

    Well, I counted my Amiga 500, my commode-door 64 & 128 my pentium system and my PDA. only one is actually running, plus the PDA. numerous fragments don't count, presumably.
      Rats, my first post and I failed to login after purging all my cookies. (an e-emetic?)
      and i counted my HP 48gx, that counts, right?

    This begs a follow-up poll (or at least, another geek purity test) -- "Of the computers that you own, how many are operational?"
      Well, most of mine havn't been turned on in 10-15 years, but they are in boxes so I guess they COULD function. donn't have a disk drive for the commode-doors though.
      I'm still using WordPerfect on my NEC laptop with a blazing 6MHz processor and 20Mb disk drive. I don't know if that counts as running, though. The clock can't handle dates after 1990. Oh well, even if I don't count that one, I'm still at 10+. Follow-on polls: How many of your computers run PERL? How many of your computers are connected to a network? How many of your computers are connected to more than one network?

    what about emulators? or how about a virtual network of emulated machines on one machine?

    Damn, didn't count the Commadore 64. then n64 for that matter either. Gandalf tea Wednesday.

    Do dual boot Win98/Linux PC's count twice? each way 2 machines and 4 perl installs.

    4 computers, 4 installs of Perl - I'm not counting my TI-99, no port to cassette.
      Ah, but how many DIFFERENT installs of Perl are there? Do you have ActivePerl for Windows on one, 6 on Linux on another, and 5.003 on the third? Or are they all the same version?

      - Ozymandias

        But I havn't found Perl for the Palm Pilot yet.
