in reply to Post-Posting Etiquette

Each man must measure his own greed. -- The Godfather

If your greed or need requires 'fixing' your post, I
won't object. However ...

All the motives that would have you hide the act of
revision are beneath you.

If it is important enough to change, it is important
enough to note the change. Do not short-change those
that paid attention to you in a timely manner.

The humbling experience of seeing your own words as
less than they should be, will increase the quality
of your posts. Or may inspire you toward silence.

The humiliation that others might heap upon you
will not be so good for your soul unless you let it.
This is not always easy nor always appropriate.

The coldness, the coolness, the warmth, the heat,
and the fire found in responses will show you the
people behind the screens.

Every post could be better.

This post could be better shorter.

[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
[marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
[marto]: some hardware/makey thing
[Corion]: marto: Ah, I'm currently drifting to that again, over"painting" (well with Inkscape) one of my photographs and thinking about vectorizing some other images ...
[marto]: Corion, yes something 'artistic', so that or some music. Even combine some things, build a musical instrument :)
