in reply to Offline Perl Development

Last year, I had the dubious pleasure of staying at a Caravan park in Cornwall, where mobile reception was very limited and wifi was unknown.

Just before I left I had a call from someone who had taken over the project I was working on in my last contract, and he had a problem.

I was forced to go down to the local pub and drink lots of their beer and food to justify my extensive use of their WiFi connection over the holiday. It was hell! :-)

If any of my proposed solutions have minor errors, it's because I don't waste my genius on trivial matters. :-P

    Uh huh ... a likely story ... and what did your code look like, when you got back?   (Or did you just “accidentally” leave your laptop in the loo?)

    ;-)   ;-)

      Well it, didn't involve writing lots of code so much as a matter of finding out how to improve a complex SQL join, and find out why the data retrieval time for this query could be several minutes on occasion.

      My laptop is a big 17" screen jobbie so its hard to forget its there. I was sitting in the beer garden, I do have a photo of my laptop with a very large caterpillar crawling along the top of the screen somewhere.....
