Not to pick nits, but the language is actually called "Perl 6" (with a space).

      In Google, you can put your query term in quotation marks:

      http://www.google.com/search?q="Perl+6"

      The closing quote is actually optional.

        Here’s a better tip: use a hyphen, as in [perl-6]. Google interprets hyphens in terms as optional and interchangable with a blank, so this gives you the results of both [perl6] and ["perl 6"]. (But Google already treats whitespace between a word and a number as partially insigificant, so you get largely the same set of results whichever the query you used. The only noticable difference is ranking – things that show up low in the results for both other queries drop even lower in the results for [perl-6].)

        Makeshifts last the longest.

[GrandFather]: That's ok when the signal is a voltage, but there are three axis accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers in these things! A little invention is needed at times!
[Corion]: GrandFather: Yeah, in that aspect, hardware is far more a black box than software
[GrandFather]: Oh, and the manufacturer tells lies too! I'm sure they don't mean to, but I know for sure some of the stuff they say is just wrong. It's possible they don't understand what we are asking, but that's not a good look either
[Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, unit testing hardware is fun, especially when the hardware is uncalibrated ...
[GrandFather]: Us: "What scaling do we need to apply to the numbers from the SDK for the wibble?". Them: "Oh, the numbers from the SDK for the wibble are already correct, they don't need scaling"
[GrandFather]: In our code: wibble range 1 scale by 1, range 2 scale by 2, range 3 scale by 4, range 4 scale by 8
