in thread My computer broked down after perl install

  1. VB is installable on Linux ... anyone heard of WinE?
  2. I was programming at the ripe old age of 9 ... using Basic.
  3. I will never be surprised at the things people pull with computers. (CD Drive / Cupholder ... the pedal broken (trying to use the mouse like a foot-driver sewing machine ...)
  4. If there were ramen noodles and cat-fur in the vents, it very easily could've burst into flame.
I'm not saying the posting is true ... I'm saying it's theoretically possible.

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.

    At least the cat hair is. I had a monitor go out once due to excessive cat hair. My cat, when he was smaller, found that the monitor was a wonderfully warm place to sleep while I was on the PC. $75 later, the monitor was working again...

    There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

    Please. I was also programming at age 9 (as were many here no doubt), and have seen a computer burn its power supply, and have run Wine. It doesn't change the fact that this is obviously a joke post.

[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
[LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
[stevieb]: with M::S, you can also add other tags, but defaults work... such as --license=perl --eumm
[LanX]: I'm not a big fan of pure make, apparently the auto generated ones are so complicated to be able to work with all possible makes
