in thread what to do when you screw-up?

Well, the 'best code you can' isn't an absolute -- it depends opn the resources available

Exactly; the best code that you can write, assuming infinite resources, is possibly (even probably) not the best code for limited resources.

Oh, and there's another thing -- interruptibility -- if you're trying to keep your head down on a development job, but you *also* have to do support, double or triple your schedule.

Lost focus costs time; at one job, I found that I was terribly unproductive, despite my best efforts, when I had a co-worker who cleared his throat, loudly and repeatedly, every five minutes. It wasn't really his fault, but it killed my ability to concentrate. Eventually, he was let go... I don't know if that was why...

Corion idly wonders about creating a series of HTTP requests. There seems to be no framework to generate a series of HTTP requests, like "try all these requests"
[Corion]: This is vaguely inspired by that list of "nasty" strings, which I'd like to replace among HTTP parameters, just to see whether the application crashes, but also for easy downloading of a list of URLs etc
[Corion]: Maybe I'll just conoct something using Algorithm::Permute to create an (OO) generator for such requests, or a simple function.
[Corion]: For testing I imagine one would want to test a random sampling of such "bad"/"unexpected" requests, while for downloading, one would want to generate them all in order, but not necessarily as a huge list
