If your only skill is crowdsourcing, you are not a programmer

    If crowdsourcing has no value, what does that mean for the cpan?

      Crowdscourcing has value, but if you need every line of your program crowdsourced, you are not a programmer.

        S'funny, but I don't remember anyone coming here asking for "every line".

        If I recall correctly, the question that started this unfortunate thread running was: how to divide a number by 2 without using the division operator. Now, whilst that is perfectly obvious to anyone familiar with binary arithmetic, I've known several programmers that have made reasonable living as productive if not gifted programmers without ever knowing anything about binary math.

        If you've made your career as a COBOL programmer and never had occasion to learn any other language--and many many have--you may well never have had the need to know anything about bit twiddling.

[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
[oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
