++AcidHawk, good work.

Perl is one of the few tools that allows you to quickly create and use a solution to one of many problems. Perl's computing speed, which many outsiders use as a sticking point in an argument against Perl, is somewhat slow. This slow-to-compute factor is outshadowed by the ability of a user (even a wannabe perl hacker) to quickly fix a problem at hand.

AcidHawk's tale is a good argument for Perl in the workplace. I'm sure many other monks would be willing to share their "war stories" on how Perl saved them from mindless work.

    [Eily]: Discipulus what's the merchandise? Other bi-people?
    [1nickt]: marto would like to hear that. Of course he speaks very deliberately and dramatically, allowing pauses between words, so if anybody could pull it off it would be him, or someone impersonating him ...
    [Eily]: Discipulus that's a chess joke BTW right? Because bishops don't walk straight :D
    [choroba]: stop making chessy jokes about bishops!
    [choroba]: I mean cheesy
    [LanX]: lol
    [ambrus]: no, the chess bishop itself is a joke on real bi-shops
    [ambrus]: or at least on the stereotype of bi-shops
    [choroba]: we call chess bishops "archers"
    [Eily]: choroba sorry, I had to get that off my chess
