Signal Handling Revisited:
$SIG{__DIE__} = sub { print "We get signal!"; };

Locale-adjusted chatterbox greeting protocol:

print 'Good ', qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6];

Overheard in the CB shortly after a conversation between crazyinsomniac and myself, regarding the finer points of various digestive waste-products:

<malaga> msg/crazyinsomniac when i chomp it, it hangs - i'm doing it wrong i'm sure - i'll go try it again
Tyke hopes that malaga's comment to crazyinsomniac has nothing to do with the excrement conversation

[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
