in thread Rook question

The above code hardly even resembles Perl as I know it. Got a lot to learn... I've heard at work they use 'map' regularly (I wouldn't say 'frequently'--something about it not processing efficiently with mysql in some contexts). I'll need to read up on that.

    I can't say I'd choose cowdawg's approach for this question, because map is a bit ill suited for this specific problem. Athanasius's is probably the most idiomatic while still being easy to understand.

[Corion]: Meh, first round of escalations for me not wanting to fix in production what a project has mismanaged. Now another project, which eats up all the resources until end of this year wants to take that task and put it on my list of things as well.
[Corion]: So now there will be the fun of me explaining to the project that $other_project had low priority because $project has high priority. If $project picks up the task from $other_project, they also will need to reprioritize my tasks to get that done...
[Corion]: ... of course at the cost of something else on my list of tasks for $project, as there only is a finite amount of days until $deadline.
