in reply to This year I plan to learn about:

I would like to learn something about Perl's guts. It would also be amusing to try to port it to the throroughly obsolete, but interesting, Univac 1108


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.

[Your Mother]: I like it. I tottered on going into hucksterism because I feel like the world deserves it.
[LanX]: he ... we have a movement here called Anti-Germans based on this
[Corion]: Your Mother: I think that's because (in the west) the Nazi-Germans are recognized as universally evil. Of course, you could do some number games to calculate other measures of evil than "historic losers of second world war" to come up with other evils:)
[Corion]: I've heard "Troll" described as the new Punk, and in a way, it can be as destructive as living the Punk lifestyle, and you don't have to sit out in the cold...
[LanX]: Anti-Germans
[LanX]: Socrates was a Troll

[Your Mother]: LanX++
[Corion]: (also the "troll for trolls sake" could seen be much like the "punk for punks beer")
[Your Mother]: I'm completely (historically anyway) a troll in real life. It's not fun online, you can't really win. :P
