    hey, can i vote for more than one? please? please? how about an "all of the above"?
      Careful now, if you accomplish all of these in one afternoon, they may expect you to become more productive.
        Or they might give you a raise. Its a tough call.
      Or an "all of the above" plus:
      • coding like a banshee
      • driving co-workers insane with loud music
      • remembering lunch fondly (ahh, the joys of having an office next door to a Vietnamese restaurant)
          uh... infoninja... how does a banshee code?

      I didn't see an entry for QUAKE?
        I think its a case of "put favorite multiplayer game here"
        Although from what I have heard, Diablo 2 has a couple of problems
        especially when playing online (Battle.net).
        Kevman,

        If there was a quake option it would have to be split into several categories (of which I play at least):
        • Quake Net
        • Quake World
        • Q3A
        • Team Fortress
        I left out Quake 2 for obvious reasons.. Its like Quake 1 on valium. :)

      I'm going to experiment to see how many vodka smoothies I have to drink before I can understand the Obfuscated Code nodes.
        If they're the proper size (XL), the answer is (in one's best wise old owl voice):
        "One<gulp>, Two<gulp>, Three<gulp>...<sound of head hitting floor> - Three!"
        There should be a quest to come up with some sort of perl drinking game. I'm not really sure what such a game would entail, but my guilines for such a game would be:

        1. Must involve obfus or JAPH code
        2. Drinks must be served in those cheapy beach-buckets that you buy for your kids at Kmart
        3. Two words: flippers and road-flares

        Any ideas?

      I think its Perl Monks not only all afternoon but all morning too. Great way to start and end the day. LeGo

      I prefer the afternoons eating the broasted chicken from the Farmer's Market across the street, sipping a beer, playing Unreal Tournament, and cranking out the Beastie Boys. :)

      I don't necessarily fork bomb, but just today I had plenty of fun echo "\a\c"ing to /dev/pts/x just b/c I'm one of 3 having root with 20 logins to play with. People think they do something wrong most often and log off. he he

      Personally, I prefer multitasking. I switch between
      • #perlmonks and
      • Diablo 2 as I
      • plot my boss' demise. I think he may be onto me, though. So when he tried to confront me about it, I pretended to
      • space out while thinking up the best way to
      • fork() bomb the guy in the next cubicle while I sip a
      • vodka smoothie and pretend everything's fine and dandy.

      <OVERZEALOUS LITERALISM>

      You know...the funny thing about the number (60 when this was written) of #perlmonks votes right now is that there are only about 7 people in the channel at a time. Not only do I not see 60 unique visitors over a long period of time, but (according to this poll), ~ 40 people should be in there during the day (subtract around 20 people who live far away from US).

      </OVERZEALOUS LITERALISM>

      I guess I should rather grant people the priveledge to escape the drudgery of work by *fantasizing* about #perlmonks...and just maybe, they can live vicariously through those of us who LIVE #perlmonks.
