If there was a really good, useful newsfeed for PerlMonks, I might read the place more… :-)

$ grep -c xmlUrl .liferea/feedlist.opml 
409

Most are low-volume and about 20 are in the “Bin” folder, where long-standing subscriptions go to die. But that’s where all the time goes that I used to spend almost exclusively on PerlMonks for a few years.

Unfortunately threads, particularly Usenet-style nested threads, don’t map very well to feeds, no matter how you arrange the setup. Maybe I should write the PerlMonks email gateway I always thought about. (Since I also skim about 30 mailing lists; but of those having low traffic.) The question is how to handle voting and moderation, though, which I never resolved.

[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
[shmem]: It's common for some vendors to have column names such as WRSTVG or some other such whizzbang, and another table where these names are mapped to something meaningful depending on how you look at the data
[shmem]: afair in SAP that occurs all the time
