|Perl: the Markov chain saw|
I would like to thank BrowserUk for all his contribution to the Monastery.
I could say how much I appreciate his posts, but since I signed as I did, it would not be relevant.
However, I invite everybody to have a look at the nodes that BrowserUk has posted in the Monastery in great quantity. One thing you'll notice. Very seldom it is the first post. Not because he doesn't know the answer and had to ask someone. Quite the opposite. He doesn't rush to answer because he is thinking on it. He posts something that you can rely upon. He posts something very elaborate and carefully thought. If you see one of his posts, you may be almost sure that it is not a classic XP-whoring exercise, and he knows what he's saying.
One more thing I like of him is that he is not that kind of saint who says "It's like that. Take it or leave it." He gives you reasons, and he listens to objections. If he happens to make a mistake, he will tell you so right away. He won't remove what he wrote before, but he will add the correction. We can learn from his mistakes as well.
So, thank you again, BrowserUk, for playing the game well and for making it even more interesting.
Anonymous because I don't want to attract XP. If you like this post, vote for the root node!
There are other monks who deserve the same praise, of course - PM is such a great place! - but what the hell, this is *his* anniversary, so let him enjoy the moment!
