in thread Selected Best Nodes Archive

On my 18th birthday (legal gambling age), I went into a betting shop and made 2 bets. I had to do something "new" to celibrate that special birthday, but I'd previously celebrated my 16th, in a pub with my girlfriend and the landlord, so drinking was passe.

The first bet was 25p each-way. It came in first and I tripled my stake.

The second, I bet my winning, 50p on-the-nose. It came in second. I was even.

That was the last time I bet on a horse. I'm a gambler that never lost any money:)

I've never yet bought a lottery ticket.

I've enjoyed fruit machines occasionally, but I bore easily, and with modern ones you don't even have the fun of pulling the handle.

[LanX]: should this be considered? Re: Parsing .txt into arrays
[LanX]: and this Re^4: Hash user input
[pryrt]: LanX, I would vote "keep" if it were considered: it's not helpful, but it could be taken multiple ways, not all of which are offenseive...
[pryrt]: 1nickt: if you are checking for valid user IDs, then I wouldn't care about the difference between 1.0 and 1: I would take either as a valid representation of the integer user ID#1
[LanX]: and this Re^2: extract column data
[Lady_Aleena]: I have two sub recurse { my ($directory, $other_var) = @_; my @files = file_list($directo ry); for my $file (@files) { if (-f $file) { do "stuff"; } if (-d $file) { recurse(" $directory/$file" , $other_var); } } } This was when I hated File::Find.
[tobyink]: 1nickt: your code?
[LanX]: pryrt: yeah, that's why I didn't consider, but the last >10 anonymous posts are from the same troll-person
[jdporter]: is there a module for expanding tabs in text?
[jdporter]: A: yes.
