    Nice! But you forgot to make the fish confess () before you croaked it ... j/k.

      I thought about trying to put bless in there somewhere... but I'm not religious... :)

    my $Mmmm = $Yummy and chomp <<&EOT;

    <)))>< ~ ~ ~ ><(((> ~


      I'm having trouble with the ampersand between the "<<" and the "EOT". So is Perl 5.6.1:
      Operator or semicolon missing before &EOT at line 4.
      Ambiguous use of & resolved as operator & at line 4.
      And then there's this:
      Can't modify scalar in chomp at line 4, near "&"
      At least, it should compile. IMO.

[Corion]: marto: Redoing something on new infrastructure sounds fun. At least you can reuse your previous experience :)
[marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
[marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
[Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
[marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
[marto]: in house as in Company network, not internet connected (power stations and the corporate HQs)
[Discipulus]: new Monsignor party! free beverages and pizza for all you monks! and a big thanks for the patience you deserved me during these years
[marto]: congrats Discipulus
