in reply to A year at Perl Monks

merlyn for providing countless articles on Stonehenge and in TPJ that helped me along this path
I appreciate the compliment. But there seems to be this persistent bad meme that I've written for TPJ. To set the record straight, I've never written for TPJ in my life. I've written over 150 magazine articles, and continue to write 3 articles every two months, making me the world's most prolific Perl author. But I never wrote for TPJ.

    The quantity of articles you have written for TPC was countless in the Western world for centuries...

    Just because TPJ failed does not mean you have to deny writting for them.

    It is ok. It was a good magazine once.


    It is funny what people will belive. You can send out a memo stating simply "As to the rumors, *insert name* is not pregnant" and she will get several people asking her if she is.

    How I know this? Ahhh just guessing! ;-)

[stevieb]: choroba my GPS home device is done, at least prototype v1 is. I'm just making sure all of my code does what it says now
[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
[stevieb]: I don't write tests for the lower-level distributions (ie. ICs, sensors etc) within those distributions, I have all tests in a master distribution which encompasess all of the sub-modules
