in reply to Thinking in perl

*nods* Happens to me quite a bit. Lately I've been dragged into a conversion project at work, and ProC keeps showing up in my dreams. Okay, nightmares. But yeah, I notice perlisms all the time, or try to convert things to perlisms in my head.

At least it's not as bad as when I worked for a phone company. They use Universal Service Order Codes, or USOCs, as shorthands for everything. For example, to this day, nearly a decade later, I know that NSD means "Caller ID". When you spend your whole day dealing with NSD/NMP/N8D/and so one, you see USOCs all over the place.

What's really bad is that I'm now working for a company in the medical/pharmaceutical market, and I still see USOCs! Except I have to remember that NDC is now "National Drug Code", not "Caller ID". Slight difference.
