in reply to Who is Perl? (Anthropomorphizing Everything)

Perl is the rebel. The one walking sideways, using the unthinkable way of quickly solving the problem.

Perl is politically incorrect in a polished world of VB, Java, Powerpoint presentations and Bullet points. (Management doesn't know how to read sentences with more than six words.)

Someone said: "Good Perl is hidden, and has no name."

Perl is what makes our inhouse VB programmers scream, saying that "We should at all costs avoid that <disgust>scripting language</disgust>". Because Perl solved the automation problem in just a small moment, where their VB application will require human intervention to do anything at all. (When and if they'll finish it. (Chuckle))

Perl is frowned upon, by the suits. Perl disturbs, because it's politically incorrect, but still it just works and works.

Did I mention that I love Perl?

Everything went worng, just as foreseen.

    Hey, that was me! Or I was one of the folks who noticed it, anyways.

[Corion]: marto: Oof - that means taking a day off or can you work from home?
[marto]: Corion, I can do some non-technical things, but there's no way for me to connect to the clients network.
[marto]: which is a shame, I had a really productive day yesterday
[Corion]: marto: Meh, so it'll be a day of cleaning out email...
[marto]: and hoped that I'd be able to continue the momentum :)
[marto]: I can't even access client email, nor my employers since those idiots moved to citrix
[marto]: it literally doesn't work. Also, via their citrix interface theres no way to open attachments, or upload an attachment for sending. The company policy is that you email you work account from a personal one, and forward it on from there :/
