in reply to poll ideas quest 2012

When my Perl script doesn't work, i

  • try to debug it.
  • go for a coffee break.
  • ask in SoPW for help.
  • demand in SoPW that someone fix it! Now!!!
  • repeatedly bash my head against the wall.
  • repeatedly bash someone else's head against the wall.
  • ignore the problem in the hope nobody will notice.
  • declare that it's a feature, not a bug.
  • write an RFC to make my "solution" an internet standard.
  • don't care.

    It's obviously a missing semi-colon, but I don't have the time to figure out where it is; therefore, change all characters to semi-colons!

    run it again "just in case"
    wait until the next morning, hoping "reverse code rot" fixes it

[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
[hippo]: The thesholds/benefits balance at the time was nuts.
[hippo]: But that doesn't last because, you know ... politicians. :(
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, if you still get enough money to get by and don't have expensive hobbies or other fixed costs that can work out well
[ambrus]: ah good. I pay only rent too. but that still costs significant money.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, but that is already budgeted for
