While bathing?

I'm sorry, but electrical equipment and water is not the best of combinations; I would think one would want to avoid using a computer while (I'm from the US; we don't use "whilst" 'cause our teachers would hit us for it) in the bath.

As an aside, the closest I've ever come to an exotic locale is logging on to Perl Monks at my sister-in-law's house. The only likely form of transport would be either MetroNorth or an Acela

emc

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

    I don't know if a low voltage device in a bath is dangerous, but I have committed the sin of logging into Perl Monks whilst using a DELL LAPTOP ON MY LAP!

      Ouch! That's very risky behavior. Maybe you should take up something safer. Skydiving?

      While the low voltages used in laptops wouldn't be dangerous to humans (or aliens?), water probably isn't good for the innards of a typical laptop. The laptops I've seen don't tend to be watertight…

[Lady_Aleena]: Right now, I'm trying to decide whether I want to rewrite how variables are entered in the sub I'm working on.
[shmem]: wait, what? you want that person to read the documentation for you?
[Lady_Aleena]: I might have to go with options instead of a straight list.
[Discipulus]: if more than 3 go for named variables LA
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
[shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
[Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
