Perl Geek Code

I write my own webserver in Perl, many mission critical parts of "my" production plant run my software and i'm actually getting paid to have fun with Perl. Why would i need a Perl Geek Code block...?

Interesting nodes

Here are some funny or "historically relevant" nodes. Most of them don't have "useful solutions to Perl problems", but are relevant in PM culture or just plain funny.

Albannach882459That reminds me of something a senior engineer told me about 20 years ago on the topic of estimating effort: double your first number and go the the next larger unit. So if your first reaction is 30 seconds, better say 60 minutes. Four hours is more likely to be 8 days, and so on. I'm still crap at estimating individual task effort, but I'm much better at total project cost at least.
sundialsvc4935935Yes, it really depends upon your project’s DFQ (Dissected-Frog Quotient), followed by your cauldron-burn and fire-bubble. ;-)
CrowMST3K The MovieBelieve me, Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding against the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid… and I went ahead anyway.

Where to find me

There is always confusion on how to find me in the "real world". I don't understand why, i'm nearly always in my office at the monastery. It is on ground level, so you wont even have to climb stairs or anything. The layout of the monastery is simple enough, it has been agreed on by a fair vote all inhabitants. Most of it is even very well documented.

If you still can't find my office, here's the map:
