I think that in general good meditations show both sides of the arguments. The way you wrote your meditation was to present the counter-argument to use a module, and then to be very dismissive about it, in a style of writing that suggests only inferior developers could have considered such arguments.

That's a way of writing that suggests to me you yourself didn't think the arguments over. Articles that picture the world using more shades of gray than black and white are far more useful - and carry much more weight in my book.

    Fair enough. That wasn't my intent, so I'm sorry it was taken that way.

[Corion]: Lady_Aleena: Quite good ;) I'm working four days now, instead of five, which helps my mood and my weekends tremendously
[Corion]: My Perl output hasn't recovered, but as $work is still somewhat stressful, I don't think this would be different with a five day workdweek
[Lady_Aleena]: Corion, that is a good thing (TM) 8)
[Corion]: And this evening, I'm actually dusting off some old module of mine and bringing it up to the last version of the library I'm wrapping
