in reply to Perl Monks say the Darndest Things

a note for posterity.. the comedian stephen wright should get some credit for the 'extra medium' bit. he's had a deadpan routine for years that has gone as such:

" I love to go shopping. I love to freak out salespeople. They ask me if they can help me, and I say, 'Have you got anything I'd like?' Then they ask me what size I need, and I say, 'Extra medium.'"

another of his:

"I saw a sign at a gas station. It said 'help wanted'. There was another sign below it that said 'self service'. So I hired myself. Then I made myself the boss. I gave myself a raise. I paid myself. Then I quit."

[ambrus]: choroba: and for perlmonks (but not for everything2), you don't even need a cookie, you can just send a username and password parameter in every request, and this is even documented in What XML generators are currently available on PerlMonks?
[holli]: i admire you choroba, if i had to work at such a place, i wouldn't last long. as bosses don't like if someone calls them clueless idiots
[ambrus]: (The cookie format is not documented anywhere afaik, but it's trivial to reverse engineer even without being a pmdev.)
[holli]: or "ignorant bricks" (that is not a typo)
[choroba]: holli The money wasn't bad :-)
[choroba]: Discipulus Try changing the URL constants to something else
