And likewise, the vast majority of my jobs have been in code maintenance: not a sexy image there, but really, most of life is routine. That doesn't mean it has to be boring (although it usually is: I work with Java).

And too, I don't see much artful in most code I've written and/or maintained. Rather the opposite: unless a system was designed "well" (for some value of "well"), I'm quite wary of it and worried about it.

[marto]: not if you keep telling people :P
[zentara]: I had to disable hyperthreading on my machine because of that.
[Discipulus]: thanks marto but... at the moment this seems a bit beyond my faculties.. ;=)
[zentara]: a thread goes into a wait state after emitting a wait to all other threads. It locks up a machine completely.
[marto]: if you mean the recent hyperthreading bug, I don't think that's NSA related?
[zentara]: s/thread/cpu/
[marto]: xkcd://538
[Discipulus]: these opcodes mentioned in the wiki pages are the same opcode perl is translated into? or is just the same term but in different fields?
[zentara]: it's useful if you want to lockup a multicore machine :-)
