    Typical Randal. Hey, Randal, have you ever thought about just acknowledging someone else's effort without taking a swipe at the bloke afterwards? I mean, really, how many times do we have to put up with you acting like the big dog and pretending that no one else has anything else to offer?

    I've read through some of your posts here and I have never seen you compliment anyone. On this one, you could have just admitted you were wrong and complimentd "ovid" on his code, or just admitted that you were wrong. Period. No, your ego wouldn't allow that. You had to cut him down.

    If you even remotely care about why you have problems with people, perhaps you should wonder why you cannot be bothered to acknowledge anyone. You know why the witch hunt at Intel and your felony conviction happened? It is not because you were wrong. It looks like you were trying to act in the company's best interest. It's because you are so arrogant that people want to take you down a peg.

    Try admitting that someone besides Randal has something worthwhile to contribute.

    Oh, and that boycott thing is typical Randal BS. Grow up.

      I'll say we have two possibilities here: You're right or you are wrong.

      If you're wrong, knock it off.

      If you're right, this is not an appropriate place for attacks like this. I for one would prefer to see this be a place where people can freely exchange ideas without vicious flames like this. Please, take this elsewhere.


      To further Ovid's statement, if you want to be taken seriously use your name. Give merlyn the courtesy of knowing his attacker and being able to respond correctly.

      Otherwise, please find another venue for your attacks. I might suggest either here or /dev/null.

      Thank you,

[LanX]: do you have a py job now?
[tye]: Right now I have errors trying to fetch stuff from graphite. It says 'apps not ready, check startup logs'. I eventually find the startup logs and see 'no apps found'. Looking for fixes to this problem...
[LanX]: no idea ... ask py monks! ;-p
[tye]: it turns out that this can be caused by almost anything going wrong. If you want to know what caused the problem, you have to try to load each app by-hand to see what problems it is having, because none of those will be logged.
[tye]: No, I write more Perl than py at work. But I have to deal with plenty of py things.
[tye]: py monks would just be offended.
[Corion]: ;)
[Corion]: Hi tye btw ;)
[Corion]: I found plenty of not chatty enough logs with Perl too ... I'm slowly coming to appreciate Log::Log4perl resp. our homegrown alternative
