Keep It Simple, Stupid

As far as I can tell, I'm a human on planet Earth stuck for the moment in the U.S. of Alabama.

I like Perl because it facilitates problem solving, that is, programming. The people at my work (cough) don't seem to agree, even though processing text files is what we do for the majority of the day. (when will they see the light)?

I like because those that reside here are friendly, understanding and knowledgable. Hopefully, when my work audits my internet usage, they will be as understanding. :)

Actually, I'm leaving my current job in May to finish my last year at college, the latter being 'fun'.

Besides learning for the second time how to have your heart broken, college has taught me the formal side of computer engineering. That is, lamda calculus, big O notation, etc. . Things which are useful in extending the understanding of the art and thus can help expand the use of it :) .

Besides learning for the second time that any job you don't choose for yourself will not be very enjoyable, work has taught me more about the different kinds of people in the world by forcing me to work with them (lol). It hasn't been as terrible as I make it sound, and it could be worse. But I would like to think my next job will be infinitely better.

I'm not used to writing bio's and such like these, but since I've been on for so long I thought I owed you all one by now!

A few brief items to end it on then.

Things that I enjoy:

  • Cooking
  • Reading
  • Programming
  • Music
  • Eating
  • Sleeping
Things I do not enjoy:
  • Intolerance (except of intolerance)
  • Purposeful Ignorance
  • Most Rap, Rave, Heavy Metal, New Country and other forms of non-music
  • Peaches
  • Microsoft Software
  • Perfume and Makeup (on myself or otherwise! :P )
    (with all of the above unenjoyables, the first rules all)
Lastly, just a few random things that are on the top of my list: Bjork, Asian food, Algorithms, nethack and AI.

[Corion]: ... or so I think. As I said, I'm somewhat vague on how to make AnyEvent cooperate with a callback-driven IO event loop that gives me callbacks when data is available or can be written
[ambrus]: what push_write thing? I don't think you need that. that's implemented generically by AnyEvent::Handle
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, that's what I think as well. But you give me an idea, maybe I should start with implementing the timer, as that should be far simpler and with fewer edge-cases/nasty interaction than the file watcher
[ambrus]: You only provide the watcher part that tells when the handle is readable or writable, not the actual writing and reading.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmmm. It makes sense that AnyEvent would implement the push_write itself, but I think I don't have a good idea of where the boundary between AnyEvent and the underlying event system lies... Implementing the timer should give me a better idea
[ambrus]: Corion: push_write is in the higher level abstraction of AnyEvent::Handle, not in the watcher
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - rereading Prima::File, that merrily coincides with what Prima does - it tells you "you can read", and you're supposed to read from the fh yourself. I thought it called you with the data already read, which would've been harder to integrate
[ambrus]: you just need an io watcher, created by &AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::io(...)
[Corion]: So after talking it through with you even while I'm still not entirely clear on where AE ends and my implementation begins, I think I understand that I only need to implement some smaller parts for each functionality I want to support.
[Corion]: Yeah... and you might even be able to mix and match additional functionality if you have additional async suppliers, like from a separate thread
