Merlyn if you ever offer a class via the web let me know.
I've heard this question a lot. But I'm never sure what it means.

Does it mean "if you ever put up your course materials on the web for free, let me know", because that's not likely to happen without a good business case. And I've already got 120 magazine columns for free on the web. Have you seen those? And the courseware is already available in a low-cost form, called "The Llama Book".

If it means "if you ever conduct a class on the web, let me know" then very likely it'll cost the same as the open-enrollment courses we offer in Portland and elsewhere, because the benefit will be the same. Except I'm unlikely to do that, because I'd have to reinvest another $75K or so to develop and rewrite my materials for web delivery, and yet the return would not be there.

So, what do you mean? What are you really asking for?

    [marinersk]: sub newtest{my $expected_result = &target('foo'); my $actual_result = &target('foo'); if ($actual_result eq $expected_result) { &tdd_success(); } else { &tdd_fail(); } } # Test works after three years!
    [choroba]: or nobody bothered...
    [choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
    [marinersk]: :: ducking ::
    [choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
    [marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
    [choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
    [choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
    [marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
    [choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
