seems to think I should post what I'm doing, and nobody else
on chatterbox expressed strong disagreement.
I often have difficulty finding old nodes I would like to link to
because of common or unrelated subjects (for example, a post about
tie with a subject of Re: RE: RE: Suggestions quest).
In an attempt to address this problem, I am going through my old
posts (which thankfully are small in number) and apending all
Re: titles with (kudra: <subject>) (minus the
emphasis). I think this could be useful because:
- Subject titles are now unique, which leads to easier linking
(existing links are most likely unaffected, because links to replies
are usually done by node_id). Titles are longer, but can always
be pasted in.
- Nodes will respond better to searchs by answering to relevant
keywords and by specifying the author in the event of multiple returns.
A quick glance at the subject will reveal if the post is the
one being sought
- The original title is retained, so it is easy to see which
posts are related, even without being on one of the thread's nodes
For an example of this, look at my list of postings.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.

Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
- a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
