    Please stop creating new threads for the same problem. Stay in one thread, that makes it much easier for everyone willing to help.

    And by the way, this is not a perl error. Perl isn't even reporting it. See find.


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

[holli]: Corion is well off. I am sure there is a script of his running in the frankfurt banking data center, diligently mining bitcoins ;-)
[Corion]: holli: Hahaha :-D
[choroba]: When working at a bank, we had a colleague who entered mining early enough to have lots of bitcoins. He used to say "I go to work just because I'm too bored at home."
[Corion]: choroba: Aah, no, I do it because of the money :)
[choroba]: And when asked "How are you?" in the morning, his reply was usually "I don't know, haven't checked the bitcoin rates yet."
