The purpose of git is to be a version control system which you can use when you're offline. I'm told that it has some other funky features too, but I'm not convinced that they are either particularly important or couldn't be implemented with cvs or svn and a few shell scripts.

    That's besides the point of this conversation. The question isn't "Should I use a VCS?" or "Which VCS I should use?", but "How do I work work on Perl?" or "What would help me work on Perl?".

    As someone who uses cvs, svn and git at work, I can assure you that there are definitely some advantages to git, and very few downsides. Some could indeed be supported by svn or cvs with proper tools, but then you'd have to spend your time writing those tools. Why would you want to spend your time porting git functionality to get *some* of the benefit of git?

    Sorry, I've out of time, so I can't go into details. Catch me later.

[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
