    I'm going to experiment to see how many vodka smoothies I have to drink before I can understand the Obfuscated Code nodes.
      If they're the proper size (XL), the answer is (in one's best wise old owl voice):
      "One<gulp>, Two<gulp>, Three<gulp>...<sound of head hitting floor> - Three!"
      There should be a quest to come up with some sort of perl drinking game. I'm not really sure what such a game would entail, but my guilines for such a game would be:

      1. Must involve obfus or JAPH code
      2. Drinks must be served in those cheapy beach-buckets that you buy for your kids at Kmart
      3. Two words: flippers and road-flares

      Any ideas?

    Personally, I prefer multitasking. I switch between
    • #perlmonks and
    • Diablo 2 as I
    • plot my boss' demise. I think he may be onto me, though. So when he tried to confront me about it, I pretended to
    • space out while thinking up the best way to
    • fork() bomb the guy in the next cubicle while I sip a
    • vodka smoothie and pretend everything's fine and dandy.

    I didn't see an entry for QUAKE?
      I think its a case of "put favorite multiplayer game here"
      Although from what I have heard, Diablo 2 has a couple of problems
      especially when playing online (Battle.net).
      Kevman,

      If there was a quake option it would have to be split into several categories (of which I play at least):
      • Quake Net
      • Quake World
      • Q3A
      • Team Fortress
      I left out Quake 2 for obvious reasons.. Its like Quake 1 on valium. :)

    I think its Perl Monks not only all afternoon but all morning too. Great way to start and end the day. LeGo

    <OVERZEALOUS LITERALISM>

    You know...the funny thing about the number (60 when this was written) of #perlmonks votes right now is that there are only about 7 people in the channel at a time. Not only do I not see 60 unique visitors over a long period of time, but (according to this poll), ~ 40 people should be in there during the day (subtract around 20 people who live far away from US).

    </OVERZEALOUS LITERALISM>

    I guess I should rather grant people the priveledge to escape the drudgery of work by *fantasizing* about #perlmonks...and just maybe, they can live vicariously through those of us who LIVE #perlmonks.

    hey, can i vote for more than one? please? please? how about an "all of the above"?
      Or an "all of the above" plus:
      • coding like a banshee
      • driving co-workers insane with loud music
      • remembering lunch fondly (ahh, the joys of having an office next door to a Vietnamese restaurant)
          uh... infoninja... how does a banshee code?
        Careful now, if you accomplish all of these in one afternoon, they may expect you to become more productive.
          Or they might give you a raise. Its a tough call.

      I prefer the afternoons eating the broasted chicken from the Farmer's Market across the street, sipping a beer, playing Unreal Tournament, and cranking out the Beastie Boys. :)

      I don't necessarily fork bomb, but just today I had plenty of fun echo "\a\c"ing to /dev/pts/x just b/c I'm one of 3 having root with 20 logins to play with. People think they do something wrong most often and log off. he he
