in reply to How do you wanna die() ?

For some perverse reason, I like the semi-technical messages. Firm favourites of mine for incorrect data are:
"User integrity error. Readjust thinking and retry entry to remedy $!\n"
"While checking data, sanity check was failed. Cannot commit entry. Commit user and retry.\n"

In sections of code I know work for me under all conditions the code should ever operate in that I know of, I have such entries as:
"Fatal error: $! Replace user and retry.\n"
I go on the theory that anyone using my code where I am has a reasonable sense of humour. Otherwise they'd have gone insane a while back. Those that went insane due to lack of humour would find the strangest of things funny anyway.
So, a little bit of levity when things go belly up is a good thing. :)

Just my tuppence worth..

[LanX]: strangely you can't disable the XP nodelet
[LanX]: But you can use CSS to hide it
[LanX]: and disoplay the data permanently in your peronal nodelet
[marinersk]: I saw that you could post it on the Personal Nodelet, but you have to provide the content also. No way to auto-populate it. Not that this would solve my distraction problem...
[LanX]: there are template variables to "Auto-populate" it
[marinersk]: Yeah, someday I might become interested enough to poke around PerlMonks more internally. Most of the fancy stuff is way down on my to do list.
[LanX]: Yeah ...
[LanX]: no variable for votes_left
[marinersk]: Ah, well. I will continue to deal with it, as I have. Thanks for poking about, though.
