in reply to If I were a rich (wo)man...

I voted for biddy-biddy-bum since it seemed the best CowboyNeal option but I have a number of projects I would love to spend time on, in no particular order-

  • Learning some other human languages -I have been dabbling in Scots Gaelic for a few years but I would also like to learn Spanish (so I can further appreciate Pablo Neruda if nothing else)
  • Writing poetry and getting more of my poetry published
  • I've started writing several novels and one day I'd like to finish one.
  • Tree hugger/looking after the environment activities -there is always room for people with time and/or money to expend here.
  • ++ other worthwhile causes
  • I developed a medium level of profficiency with the flute when I was having lessons some years ago and I would love to get back to it.
  • More time in the garden growing food and in the outdoors generally.

I expect I will always enjoy playing about with computers but being chained to a desk is far from my idea of bliss. If I had enough cash I would offer a bounty for someone to develop a Perl equivalent of the Starkit.

    FWIW, at the time you wrote that, these equivalents existed, Perl2Exe, PerlApp/ppm, PAR/pp

[thezip]: My dogs are also excellent mousers, at least that's what they tell me.
[GotToBTru]: our beagle has dispatched 3 rabbits to the Great Hutch in the Sky since March.
[thezip]: I can always tell when the dogs have been mousing, as there is a concentric ring of mud around the end of their snouts when they do.
[thezip]: As for more physical evidence, that always seems to be missing somehow
[Rabbi Bob]: We have a Jack Russell: off the leash she is a torpedo against mice, rats, chipmunks and squirrels
[Rabbi Bob]: Doesn't eat them, just snaps, kills, drops and moves on.
[thezip]: Efficient, that one.
[erix]: my dog could do the classic mouse jump (never caught a mouse :)
