“Show me your flowcharts and conceal your tables, and I shall continue to be mystified. Show me your tables, and I won’t usually need your flowcharts; they’ll be obvious.”
Frederick P. Brooks, Jr., The Mythical Man-Month

“Any software problem can be solved by adding another layer of indirection.”
Steven M. Bellovin

“Almost all programming can be viewed as an exercise in caching.”
Terje Mathisen

“Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.”
Edsger W. Dijkstra

“People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.”
Alan Kay

“More computing sins are committed in the name of efficiency (without necessarily achieving it) than for any other single reason, including blind stupidity.”
William A. Wulf, A Case Against the GOTO

“Rules of Optimization:
Rule 1: Don’t do it.
Rule 2 (for experts only): Don’t do it yet.”
Michael A. Jackson

“Optimizations always bust things, because all optimizations are, in the long haul, a form of cheating, and cheaters eventually get caught.”
Larry Wall

“Rule of thumb: if you think something is clever and sophisticated, beware: it is probably self-indulgence.”
Donald Norman

“Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.”
Brian W. Kernighan

“It is easier to optimize correct code than to correct optimized code.”
Bill Harlan

“Programs must be written for people to read, and only incidentally for machines to execute.”
Abelson, Sussman and Sussman, Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, in the preface to the first edition

“When the code and the comments disagree, both are probably wrong.”
Norman Schryer

“There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.”
C. A. R. Hoare

“Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n’y a plus rien à ajouter, mais quand il n’y a plus rien à retrancher.”
“Perfection is apparently achieved not when nothing more can be added, but rather when nothing else can be removed.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Terres des Hommes

[marioroy]: The MCE::Hobo::Pool module will come later.
[Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
[marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
[Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
[Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
[marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
