warn 'everyone' and exit('ASAP') if ($Rita->category > 3) and ($monk{'location'} =~ /Gulf Coast/);

/me leaves town for higher ground.

      Our attempt to flee to safer grounds this morning resulted in a wasted half tank of gas that only got us 1 mile down the Interstate. A normal 4 hour drive to Dallas was reported as taking some evacuees +24 hours. With very little gasoline in the city we realized that we'd soon be destitute and still in the Hurricane's path if we continued on our exodus so we decided to stay behind and try our luck at home.
      $_->wish('luck') foreach @evacuee;

        That's what I was thinking earlier today, all those people stuck on the highway are going to be "Sitting Ducks" for Rita. I wish all of you good luck. Being a spiritual man, I will pray for your safety.

[ambrus]: ething that's both cleanly organized and mostly automated.
LanX in train, bad connection
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
[LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
[ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
[ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
[ambrus]: Some of the manual part is unavoidable, but not all.
