in thread Where were you at epoch == 0 ?

I chose the Linux one, April 1, 1970,

1st of April? Don't you mean the 1st of January?

Assuming the latter, at that exact moment I was in my parental home playing monopoly with my dad, 5 siblings, a couple of older sister's boyfriends and an uncle & aunt.

If you've ever played monopoly with a dozen people all mildly intoxicated (kids were allowed small glasses of Raisin Wine on Xmas and New Year), it gets very silly.

The neighbors must have thought we were mad; breaking out in to a chorus of happy birthday every time someone got the "It is your birthday, collect .." card.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally the module would do all that nasty stuff for me and give me a way to ask it what the current situation is
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using some wrapper over the multi interface of curl, I think Net::Curl might be a good one, since implementing enough of what it expects from the event loop might be easier than a full AnyEvent interface.
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using IO::Async and its POE driver and some HTTP module for it, but I don't know if that would solve your problems with AnyEvent+POE
[ambrus]: Corion: wait, you didn't say POE. You said Prima, let me look up what that is.
[ambrus]: Corion: have you considered just writing an AnyEvent integration for that thing?
[ambrus]: Or perhaps pushing schmorp to write one?
[ambrus]: Also, searching for an existing one on CPAN obviously
[Corion]: Prima, which is mostly cooperative multitasking
[ambrus]: Corion: also (sorry for the obvious ideas) consider running your HTTP thing in a separate process from Prima (separate thread won't work well if you need a perl interpreter on both sides)
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, that's the alternative which I considered, at least for file I/O, but as I only want to simply do HTTP from my Prima app :)
