in reply to Perl Monk Mentors

As an FYI, there will likely be a montoring program in the somewhat-near future (nothing to do with PerlMonks). It will be under the whole learn.perl.org "project" we have been working on. I just have to get a few tuits to put the ideas into action :)

But! That does give me a chance to ask you folks this: What would you look for in a mentor, and what would you (as a mentor) look for in an 'apprentice'? These questions will be posed in various places, but I need ideas to what people will look for so I can build the system around what people expect. Any suggestions are appreciated, I want to plan this well so it actually works, and isn't thrown together in a way that noone benefits.

Cheers,
KM

[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
