I can't think of a poll that's had more good options. I vote this Best PerlMonks Poll Ever.

And an additional ++ to blazar for your admirable spirit... you're an inspiration to us all.

    Well, most of the options are just not my own work. And another (IMHO) good one that unfortunately occurs to me only now is:

    • if they trick $SIG{__DIE__} suitably

    As far as the possibility of "voting" it is concerned, I had already proposed in the past a (meta-?)poll about the best past poll, but it was not accepted. Perhaps it was "kinda too much".

    And an additional ++ to blazar for your admirable spirit... you're an inspiration to us all.

    Thank you for your kind words, I've never thought of myself as of being an inspiration to anyone either before or after the disease. I'm just keeping on fighting.

      Ahhh, but isn't that the true wisdom of the universe? Never say die()? Lots of people would avoid even thinking of the word in any sense. Here you are, you keep chomp()ing away helping all of us selflessly, the archetypal humble monk. I say again, blazar++.

[Corion]: Meh. I have a very simple mechanism to scrape+track prices, and even to send me mail if something changes (via cron), but SQLite doesn't support window functions, so my simple SQL to determine a price change won't work :-( Maybe I should store the DB ...
[Corion]: ... in Pg, but that would mean that I'd have to deal with credentials and stuff :)
[Corion]: In fact, the whole thing is just four simple programs, one App::scrape, another being DBIx::RunSQL, and one some glue to convert a JSON object into an SQL INSERT statement (+DBI connect/execute), so it would be an incredibly simple solution...
[Corion]: ... but that simplicity falls down due to SQLite letting me down and me being too lazy to move to a real DB. Maybe DBD::CSV can handle window functions...
