in reply to Guidance for a beginner with a bad reputation

What I've found is that people who take reputation/points seriously generally take themselves too seriously. But when you get right down to it, very little in life deserves to be taken seriously. After all, it's just life. It's not like we're gonna get out of this thing alive ...

Loosen up, learn Perl, share and have fun. Everything else is just window dressing.

If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
[ambrus]: So now when I choose what motherboard to buy for my new home computer, I have one more specific property to guide me. Useful, because there's so many different boards to choose from.
