in thread MARCH is...

As a case of minor nitpicking, shouldn't that be "disputandam"? I may be wrong, though, since it's been a while since I last used any latin (outside of quidquid latine dictum sit profundum viditur, anyway ;)).

Outside of that, it never ceases to amaze me that there are people who like beer, malty in taste or not. :) But as you said...

    No, it should definitely be 'disputandum' - something like a neuter nominative singular (present) gerundive, if that dusty brain cell in the corner isn't taking the mickey.

    Hugo

      Point taken. *s* And Google also supports this opinion; a search for "de gustibus non est" shows a clear preference for "disputandum".

      Now I feel old. :)

[msh210]: perl -e'warn "test$/", "" '
[msh210]: doesn't append anything.
[msh210]: It should say "If the last nonempty element of LIST" or "If the string thus to be printed does not end in a newline""
[msh210]: Am I wrong?
[shmem]: no. You're right.
[msh210]: About time... last time I was right was... I don't even remember when.
[shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
[Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
