in reply to sort timestamps with associated names.

Your data seems to use fixed length records, so you can just use substr to extract the timestamp fragment:
my @sorted = sort { substr($a, 10) cmp substr($b, 10) } @data;

[marto]: whent he boys start school I'll build myself as new machine, ryzen based
[Corion]: marto: That's cool! I think my (home) desktop spends 30 seconds in the BIOS...
[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
