Temporal's Cloister

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
- Heinlein

To grok Perl one must first grok Perl.

Elemental's ruminations on tea:

On 80 cups a day, I haven't slept for 80 years! O_O
You could say I'm mad for tea--or, or just say I'm mad--
Oh, you can't stay any longer? Oh, actually, I'm, I'm quite glad--
All the more Battenberg for me.
I can barely pour, my hands have gone a bit shaky from caffeine--
I love it though, I'd sell me own grandma for a cup...
Well, I'd sell your grandma for a cup...

[james28909]: i dunno, if i didnt have so little experience in linux i would swap. but it would be to much of a learning curve for me right now.
[choroba]: Low-end is defined as the Perl that generates millions of income
[choroba]: sorry, that's high-end, of coursse
[choroba]: low end, in my talk, will be code that "we don't touch because it works" and noone knows why
[choroba]: I want to present the most bizzare bugs and misfeatures I met when working for a large financial institution
[choroba]: I already gave a similar talk to my friends in a pub and at an internal conference at work and people liked it, so maybe...
[choroba]: LanX: That's the heritage, I can't do anything else
[RonW]: Sounds like some system my employer has "It does exactly what we need it to do and can't afford to risk anything we can't prove is 100% compatible"
[marto]: choroba sounds interesting
[RonW]: james28909 Why not write a Perl program to do the task?
