Regarding the user Perltidy...

Recently I have been corresponding with Steve Hancock, the author of the perltidy source code formatting tool.

While discussing things the subject of the monastery came up, with special reference to the user Perltidy. The reason it came up was I wanted to post a node about perltidy, and did a search first, only to be disappointed to see that the user had been created but never logged in. Turns out that the user Perltidy _is_ Steve Hancock but that email problems have prevented him from getting his password.

So, I would like to ask on his behalf to either delete the user so that we can post a node titled 'perltidy' about the tool and he can create a new login or to send him his password details so he can use his account. (They can be sent to

Thanks a lot,

Yves / DeMerphq

    I've reset his password and e-mailed him a hint on the new one. Hopefully it will work better.

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
[Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
[Corion]: ... "changed"
