I guess that depends on your definition of "rush hour traffic".

For instance, for me to get to my (soon to be prior) job, if I take public transportation, it takes me anywhere from :45 (on a REALLY good day) to 1:30 (on a bad day).

If I drive during rush hour, it takes anywhere from :25 to :35, but costs a little over twice as much.

If I drive on a saturday, with no competing sporting events to clog traffic, :10, and since I can park at a meter instead of in a garage, costs less than either..

Yet I live 6 miles from the office...

I maintain that unless I'm riding in airwolf, it wouldn't be less time. Think of what happens if air traffic over Chicago isn't clear, or the extra time to call for and ride the elevator down from the nearest building with a helipad...

;-)

My definition is the traffic that affects me in So. California (LA/Orange/San Diego Counties). And rush "hour" can be a misnomer, since the traffic can likely last all day.

I wasn't talking about you :-)

 [1nickt]: choroba Is it a safe assumption that if there is a threaded perl then the user will want to use Thread::Queue? [hippo]: Why not? [1nickt]: That's good! I suppose the cpanfile would be the same however the app distro is structured ... [1nickt]: hippo no reason why not other than wanting to check an assumption :-) [hippo]: For a self-contained application which can therefore ensure thread safety it seems like a sensible approach.
