Some of these I came up with for the Linux Users Group at Georgia Tech page, but many apply to coding in general:

  • I prefer sleeping...
    • During the Night
    • During the Day
    • When I'm Tired
    • Sleep is Unintentional Downtime
  • Favorite Unix Holy War (by Buddy Smith)
    • Pine vs. Elm
    • Emacs vs. Vim
    • Gnome vs. KDE
    • GUI vs. Console
    • Lihnucks vs. Lynucks
  • Worst command to run as root
    • rm -rf /
    • killall -9 init
    • dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/hda
    • make install
  • Number of different OS's I've run Perl on
    • One
    • Two
    • 3-5
    • 5+
    • My brain has a built-in 5.6.0 compiler.
  • Best way to get a bug fixed.
    • File a bug report.
    • Whine, whine, whine.
    • Kill the coder (they're replaceable, right?).
    • Ha><0R the bO><oR
    • Make random noises.
    • Redefine the Unix epoch.

  • What's the best way to untar tar.gz files? (by Lincoln Durey)
    • tar xzvf
    • tar -xzvf
    • alias unpack="tar xzvf"
    • zcat | tar xvf -
    • rpm --install

It would be an interesting (if very highly unscientific) to see what differences there are in the poll responses on PerlMonks vs. on a LUG homepage...
