They seem like smart people.

A smart person is an economically efficient person.

Don't try to convince them to use Perl. Convince them to use The Best Tool for the Job™. Usually, (though not often) it's Perl. :)

Good luck with your evangelical endeavor.

    I have to concur on what John says.

    If there is one thing I learned in the last 35 years, it must be: "never tell people what to do".
    Let them decide for themselves.

    On the other hand, there's absolutely no harm in showing them the "path of enlightenment"...<GRIN>

    Cheers,

marioroy At a large firm, had to awaken a security guy a few times so that nobody would catch him sleeping.
marioroy On a large dairy farm, almost went off the road with a 10 wheeler from exhaustion. On the farm, almost went off the silo with a big tractor. At the Fransiscan monastery, almost slipped off the dome while painting it.

Lady_Aleena clean up after dinner finally.
[Discipulus]: uch! so we are twice lucky to have MCE..;=)
[marioroy]: Working a midnight graveyard shift, on the way home ran out of gas. just 2 minutes later somebody stops with a small tank of gas. It's wierd. There's always someone nearby for some reason.
[Lady_Aleena]: I was the one who stop[ed in the middle of a cold night to pick up a small family walking to a gas station. I got a few gallons of free gas for the round trip, and the grandmother said she'd pray for me.
