I only use Perl for fun, because my boss is afraid of all things new and different. This state of affairs is somewhat ironic, as he works at JPL, and is just about the last remaining person refusing to abandon the VMS operating system.

This is ironic because, IIRC, Perl was born at JPL on Vax machines which were (I belive) running VMS, right? At least, larry wall had an e-mail address at the JPL Vax development cluster.

If we don't change direction soon, we'll end up where we're going.

[Corion]: Meh. My lack of embedded Pg is showing. I can get the data for an image gallery with one SQL statement, but not with SQLite as it doesn't do window functions :-(
[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe I can still fake the one spot where I want/need a window function in SQLite... I think I'm never really interested in the real "next" image (not hidden/deleted)
