in reply to Best Replies Possible ?

Looks like I've got mostly negative feedback, so I'll try and make a few points

  • I'm not using "Best Whatever" to vote. I'm interested in using it to find the gems out there. I probably would never have seen erudil's camel code if it weren't for Best Nodes.
  • Over time, replies with high reps tend not to last on Best Nodes, because the top-level nodes garner more votes from being front-paged and/or visible one-click from the home page. Have a look at Best Nodes. There's plenty of reply-type nodes in the "Day" category, but very few make it to "Week", and "All Time".
  • I'm not suggesting "Best SOPW" or any other extension beyond "Best Replies". Just a Best Nodes with toplevel nodes weeded out.
  • I'm not even particularly interested in seeing the rep of the nodes. Just the top "Day", "Week" and "All Time" sorted by rep. I understand that "rep" isn't really the best indicator of quality, but it's all we have :)

[Discipulus]: and in the wanted sub you just calculate the duretion and add it the total, stop
[shmem]: sub wanted { push @files, $File::Find::name if $File::Find::name =~/\.mp3$/ }
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, that is understandable! The two examples in File::Find don't make sense to me on a quick glance.
[marioroy]: LA if the find worked from Unix command line, or does it not. Likely a quoting issue inside Perl qx.
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, the find worked fine at the command line.
[marioroy]: LA, yeah. than there's no reason why it cannot work inside qx. But chatting is hard in PM. I cannot see the code now.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: sometimes a quick glance isn't enough.
