in thread an easier way with grep, map, and/or sort?

If there's one thing that really irritating, it's these endless chained "if" statements that do very little but take up a ton of room.

I couldn't agree more-- that's pretty much what motivated this question!

It looks like it escaped from some long forgotten COBOL code if you ask me.

never had the pleasure of even seeing COBOL code, but as I was trying to write perl, I would far prefer it look like idiomatic perl than anything else ;)

Thanks for your response. I'll try it out just as soon as I get my head all the way around how it works :D

[LanX]: strangely you can't disable the XP nodelet
[LanX]: But you can use CSS to hide it
[LanX]: and disoplay the data permanently in your peronal nodelet
[marinersk]: I saw that you could post it on the Personal Nodelet, but you have to provide the content also. No way to auto-populate it. Not that this would solve my distraction problem...
[LanX]: there are template variables to "Auto-populate" it
[marinersk]: Yeah, someday I might become interested enough to poke around PerlMonks more internally. Most of the fancy stuff is way down on my to do list.
[LanX]: Yeah ...
[LanX]: no variable for votes_left
[marinersk]: Ah, well. I will continue to deal with it, as I have. Thanks for poking about, though.
