PSI::ESP!

I knew Perl::Mindreader was the wrong title!

    "Points matter not! Judge me by my points, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And, well you should not..."
    with apologies to LucasFilm, Ltd.

    And why not? If I'm wrong, I expect one of you to trout slap me as needed. Others have expressed similar views.

    The point being that we are (generally) a team with a similar purpose. I personally welcome all honestly-meant suggestions, regardless of the source. (Trolls, of course, will be cheerfully ignored.)

    So feel free to offer your ideas on what I or we should do. Just understand that I may (or may not) listen to them...but that's my own lookout. :-)

      Yeah I can see your point. I suppose in the situation of a senior monk I figure its better to /msg than to post. After all odds are they have the posting guidelines down pretty well, and if theyve chosen to ignore them for a reason who am I to publicly criticize? A private comment OTOH...

      Despite my XP, I am a relative newbie and do not feel its appropriate to lecture my seniors. Debate them wholeheartedly is a different matter entirely.

      I don't know why, but the font Netscape was using to render that made it seem to read Pants matter not! Judge me by my pants, do you?.

      There's possibly a deep message in that. Or I may just be too easily amused on Monday mornings . . . .

        The message would be of different depths depending on how much time you've spent in the UK... Ie, exactly what you consider to be pants.

        I shudders every time I remember the time I walked into a camping store in London and asked for Gore-Tex pants. Being British they politely informed me that I needed a geriatric store. Took me a while to realize what exactly they were on about.

        :-)
