A Day In The Life

The following emerged after a discussion on #perlmonks after Petruchio, boo_radley and I were playing with the idea of a Perl Monks MUD.

The really cool part about this is that it's actually quite feasible. All we need is some extra XML feeds into PM and a Perl Monks MUD/CLI is possible. Needless to say, we're looking into it.

Welcome to Perl Monks MUD, version 1.0 [Anonymous Monk]> login ar0n p455w0rd You're logged in now. You find yourself standing just inside the Monastery Gates, when you s +ee what appears to be a cup with a little handwritten cardboard sign next + to it, that says "Donations gladly accepted." You notice the cup is empty +. > donate $100 You take out your wallet and discover that you only have 3 dollars. > donate $3.00 You put 3 dollars into the cup. > listen You hear a bird chirping. The wind is blowing through the trees and th +ey make a nice soothing sound. You close your eyes to focus on the sound +for a few moments when in the distance you hear some muffled voices. They appear to be coming from the chatterbox. > go to chatterbox As you approach the chatterbox, the voices grow louder and more distin +ct. It appears to be an argument, but you can't be sure without listening +more closely. > listen to chatterbox <Ducati> Is there a history for the chatterbox ... I need to find an +old msg sent to me in the CB ... I was refed to a node and I forget w +hat it was .... <chipmunk> Ducati: no, there is no archive of CB chatter, sorry. <chipmunk> if you remember anything about the node you might find it +with [Super Search] <Ducati> ok ... at the risk of being flamed (I did do a search) .. wh +ere can I find out what $_ and $_[0] does ?? <tye> [Ducati], yes, there are lots of CB archives, but they are all +in the hands of people afraid to publicly admit that they have been a +rchiving <Ducati> [tye] Um .. ok ... <Albannach> /me hopes nobody has been archiving /msgs to [Ducati] <Ducati> [chipmunk] It described $_ I searched on that and got some p +ost by AM <lemming> [tye] Does leaving the java CB on overnite count? <Ducati> [Albannach] Why is that ?? ^C You decide you've heard enough and make an attempt to ignore the chatt +erbox. > go to newest nodes You are in Newest Nodes. > look You look around and see 3 nodes (162314, 162316, 162317) by an Anonymo +us Monk, all of which have the same title. Another node (162331) by an Anonymou +s Monk appears to be using <pre> tags for code instead of <code> There is a Meditation (162346) written by the revered [Ovid], labeled +Off Topic. In Discussions, you see a node (162308) titled 'regarding server downt +imes' by El Presidente himself, [vroom]. > consider delete 162314 You consider node 162314 for deletion. > edit node 162314 title =~ s/^/(duplicate) /; The title of node 162314 is now: (duplicate) FILE UPLOAD???/ > consider delete 162316 You consider node 162316 for deletion. > edit node 162314 title =~ s/^/(duplicate) /; The title of node 162314 is now: (duplicate) FILE UPLOAD???/ > edit node 162331 content =~ s!<(/?)pre>!<$1code>!gi; 2 substitutions on node 162331. > go to 162308 Timed out while attempting to connect to adfu.blockstackers.com > sigh You sigh a breath of discontent > quit [jona@dharma]$

Stay tuned for PM MUD II: The Downvote Menace!

    *string of expletives*

    This was my Big Secret Idea.

    I guess I'll just have to watch it happen, now that some more experienced types stole my idea. ;P

    EDIT: That journal entry only has one line about the secret project. I really meant to link this one.
