in reply to New to Perl Link

I think the problem is that if some one is new to perl they would then also be new to the Monastery. Making another area or tutorial will not make the problem go away. Often I see some one who has a dire problem and is desperately looking for a solution as soon as possible. They are not going to take the time to do a search or look around. Their first impressions might be that PM is more like an open forum. I think you would get better results by steering those who are "New to Perl" to where they would be more likely to get a faster answer: by doing a search.

[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
[ambrus]: The pillars are there because this is in the 6th floor of building R of BME, which is an attic that was built in after the original building, which is also why the elevator doesn't go that high and the windows are tiny.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hehe ;) Yeah - such real life stuff is far more inconveniencing than wasting display area due to screen ratio problems :)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, it's a bit tricky. you can try to adjust the slides live to cover only a part of the screen, but it's still hard.
[ambrus]: Corion: two very hard things about presentations I should try to work on if I have twenty times as much free time as in real life are:
[Corion]: That's why I like HTML - it makes it relatively easy to resize stuff. Resizing with Powerpoint is much harder, or at least, I remember it being that way
