in thread Perl 6 feature that scares me the most:

I didn't vote. None of the suggested fear-factors scares me at all (except perhaps for the very real possibility that "theDamian is trying to drive me mad!" ;-)

About the only thing that does scare me about Perl 6 is the (very slim) chance that we might not get it finished. It's just so much more fun programming in Perl 6, even if it's still mainly in my head. I'd hate to see us ever have to give up on it, and let the naysayers and FUD-mongers win.

Larry and the rest of us are all still totally committed to the project, of course, but we definitely need the economy to start picking up soon. As Larry mentioned at the end of Apocalypse 6, our day jobs are beginning to interfere with our Real Work. :-(

[marto]: erix unlikely, we've had posts within the last few minutes ;)
[ambrus]: nysus: make sure you enter at least two lines for the title and then preview, and read warnings the preview form prints
[davies]: There is an option (I have it set) to force preview before submission. Perhaps your option has been set (accidentally?) and you are not expecting it.
[ambrus]: sorry, I mean at least two words for the title and then preview
[ambrus]: davies: that option is the default. and it's not really "force", it just hides the button.
[marto]: yes, not reading the errors displayed has been a cause of this type of report in the past
[nysus]: Ambrus, ah. I think that was the problem. I'll try. Thanks!
[davies]: Ambrus: you've missed it by a couple of weeks, but consider next year's London Perl Workshop.
