    The skillset, priorities and demands of a programmer are very different than those of a manager. You know you need to do regression testing (for example); he knows that Marketing has made a committment for a certain date. Something has to give.

    I understand that, but believe a truly great manager would be able to keep a foot in both camps. (Not that I should talk; I can't manage others to save my life).

[Lady_Aleena]: And what would I rename RolePlaying/Random .pm to if I move all the RolePlaying/Random modules to just Random? Random/ Random/, maybe lowercase the file name to indicate it is a bit different? I don't know yet.
[marioroy]: What does Random do?

[Lady_Aleena]: karlgoethebeir, I finished another project tonight, making a module which printed stop printing. It was a headache and a half.
[karlgoethebier]: Lady_Aleena: Try it!
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, it has 3 subroutines which can be fed data to generate random things. See here.
