in reply to This best sums up my view on xmas lights

While living in the dorms in my first year at college, my entire room was decorated in black and white, with the exception of the multiple strands of red lights (they were actually "Valentine's day lights"). It was really creepy...in red light your eyes don't focus as quickly as you move, which makes people dizzy and disoriented after a while. Seeing as how everyone in the dorms was continually, umm...dizzy and disoriented, anyway, I didn't realize this until I tried to put them up in my apartment a year later :)

Moral of the story: I don't like Christmas lights!

[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
[shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
[shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
[stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
[shmem]: sounds good.
[shmem]: but I'm crumbling smaller stones. remember...
