in reply to Shut down the Snippets Section

I make a distinction between CUFP, Meditations and Catacombs as follows:

focused on applications: I caught mice or solved a puzzle or cured cancer

focused on discussion: "This is what I think about Perl6 what do you guys think" or "rah rah Perl vs. Python" or "This is what I think about being an IT proffessional"

focused on code: cannonical solutions or cool solutions for not-necessarily-cool uses of perl

I'm not really intending to say anything aginst your vision re: CUFP; I like the idea of consolidation. I only intend to express distinctions that seem useful to me now and weren't really represented in your OP. In fact, to the extent that these disctinctions are artificial in my head, they may be blocking me from finding something I'm looking for. I'm just giving a little feedback.

As to Snippets, I haven't found it useful enough to keep or un-useful enough to can. I'd let those with stronger opions speak about its usefulness or maintainability.

#my sig used to say 'I humbly seek wisdom. '. Now it says:
use strict;
use warnings;
I humbly seek wisdom.
