Killing Chatterbox conversations since 2003!

Describe in single words. Only the good things that come to your mind. About your mother.

Mom’s Homemade Anonymous Monk Policy

I am entirely in favor of allowing anonymous posts. That said, I have a general dislike of those who do it. No continuity, broken context, inability to amend posts. It's like someone yelling from a passing car in the dark. There are a handful, three that I think I can identify as past named monks, of excellent Perl hackers that post anonymously. I wish they wouldn't but I'm glad they're still here. A decent slice of the others are jackass time wasters; flatulence waved in your face. I will not err on the side of amiability when a post is from Anonymous Monk and it's overly terse or foolish or rude or wrong. If you want to be treated with respect or get some benefit of the doubt or bank credibility, show your face, as is it were. Otherwise you are self-unidentifying with some fairly awful, or least inconsistently good, human beings. Sometimes there is no sure way to tell the difference. It's not my job to try. :P

I favor the camel as I never found a horse that was high enough for my liking.
80% of the time, I’m right every time.
...a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason. –Thomas Paine
Programming is a Dark Art, and it will always be. The programmer is fighting against the two most destructive forces in the universe: entropy and human stupidity. They're not things you can always overcome with a "methodology" or on a schedule.DC
On second thought, let’s not hack in Python. T’is a silly language.

[jedikaiti]: 'ello Monks
[Cosmic37]: and monkeys too...
[Cosmic37]: is anyone doing machine learning with Perl?
[Cosmic37]: I was using gneural code in C and it was interesting but did not have back propagation for neural networks
[corenth]: Cosmic, poking at it, but not really.
[Cosmic37]: I read that its possible to use the FANN library with Perl so I might try that now...
[corenth]: i have a question. I used map{ blah();blah(); blah();}@stuff; and it used up a ton of memory vs. the for(@stuff){} equivalent. What gives? (if anyone knows)
[Cosmic37]: FANN also has LGPL license which I like and its supposed to be quite a capable library from what I read
[corenth]: Cosmic, that sounds interesting. What is FANN (I could search it if I weren't so lazy about it)?
[Cosmic37]: how big was @stuff corenth?
