Perl-Sensitive Sunglasses

Err ...

Started programming when I was 12 (1980) in BASIC and Z-80 assembly.

Started programming perl ... oh, I forget, a while ago.

I have since written some extremely sloppy code for many different uses.

Like a online quote generator (lo-end relational database) and some search engines.

I'm easily bored, so I have a lot of hobbies: perl, bass guitar, sound recording, graphic design, graffiti (yes, that's me; no, I don't do it, I take pictures of it), and other ways of wasting time.

HyperZonk for more personal stuff, if you're really that bored ...

Principle versus Personalities addresses important issues for the our community's well-being. IMO, of course.
Moron Users is an important thing for every programmer to try to keep in mind, even when we're frustrated (so hard).

My Favorite Monks

Darn, that's a hard one. Pretty much everyone I've come across has been friendly and helpful. Advice: hang around, see who is helping others with questions and who is fun and helpful in the Chatterbox. But here are some of the people I've gotten to know (in no particular order):
  • toma Ever helpful, ever friendly
  • scottstef Great person, also helpful
  • LD2 Very smart, very friendly
  • tye A true wizard, yet always helpful with newbies
  • JSchmitz This guy can even monger code when he's drunk and has a great sense of humor even when he's sober
  • MeowChow Great sense of humor, awesome Perler
  • tilly This guy can do anything in Perl, and is also helpful (even if he does get grumpy at times ;)
  • CheeseLord Another great sense of humor combined with skill
  • japhy Ditto
  • epoptai Another master of Perl, always helpful, wrote framechat which is worthy of mention by itself
  • lemming Helpful and a great personality, too
  • footpad Helpful and an advocate for Perl beginners ;)
  • ChemBoy Yet another master with a sense of humor
  • Zaxo How did I forget Zaxo? ...
  • petral Really brilliant, but always helpful and nice
I could go on and on (as a matter of fact this list keeps growing when I remember or meet new people), but these are the people who I've had particularly good experiences with.

One last important mention: merlyn has taught me and many other people more about Perl than we ever thought we'd know. I don't know him all that well, but if he says something about Perl, you should probably listen.

don't blame me for this idea, it's CheeseLord's fault! Err, no, virtualsue's fault! No, no, wait ... ummmm ...

[Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
[marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
[Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
[Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
[marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
[marioroy]: I also have a Hobo driver for Forklift allowing folks to use in multiple classes, no conflicts with one another. That's not possible for P::FM.
[Discipulus]: congrats marioroy!
[marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
[Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
[Corion]: Oh, yes, programs could call wait $pid, but if your $pid is an object, then you could add a ->wait method to it and wait $pid would call that automatically "thanks" to indirect object notation
