in reply to The three virtues of Perl are CONFLICTING!

The virtues are surprisingly similar to some of the values of the Extreme Programmer:
  • Build for today -- write the simplest code that will fulfill the required objectives
  • Don't add complexity you can add later (for the same or slightly higher cost)
  • Refactor mercilessly -- keep improving your code
On the other hand, Larry went a little overboard with the laziness. Thirteen or fourteen years later, he's still working on Perl while he's no longer connecting the two machines cross country.

Sometimes you've just gotta do the best you can.

[Eily]: I still don't understand how the Turkish AA fit into the German+Czech joke though :P
[LanX]: new Firefox + cb sidebar do random auto expand on submit
[LanX]: probably need to start pm discussion
[LanX]: they have a constitutional referendum in turkey, kind of "do you want a dictator" and everybody opting no gets problems ...
[Corion]: LanX: Random Auto Expand?
[Corion]: LanX: Well, everybody opting "yes" will also get problems. The question is more like "Do you want problems now or problems later?"
[LanX]: and the AA had posters with a big say NO with a small "to alcohol"
[ambrus]: LanX: is it the kind of free and secret vote where there's only one box you can check?
