in reply to My handwriting implement of choice is…

I used to always use a black Pilot vball Extra fine, which is one of those inky pens. You can't draw anything decently with a ball point... they skip.

Nowadays, since I draw much less than I used to, I use whichever pen I've gotten from one conference or another. Just last week my Sapo.pt pen from YAPC Lisbon split apart, spring flew out, had to junk it :(

[Corion]: Hmmm. I feel a Meditation coming on. I wrote a module, DBIx::PivotQuery, which returns a table-like set of rows (AoA) but some columns are generated from column values, like in an (Excel) pivot table or a ROLLUP command
[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
