The only fiction I've read:
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    At times THGTTG has seemed less like fiction than non-fiction. Anyone not seen a Vogon throw a coworker out the nearest airlock just because they couldn't appreciate the captain's 'poetry'? And who hasn't found themselves in a project with an SEP thrown around it? Though Marvin did seem a bit more cheerful than some I've worked with...

    [SEP - Somebody Else's Problem field - useful for encouraging people to not see things that are in plain sight, not acknowledging existence, etc.]

    I am very disappointed that The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy wasn't one of the choices. After all it is required reading here at the Monastary. :-)

[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: Oooh - finally, I can say no lazy; :)
[Corion]: But it's another The::Net incarnation, too sad ;)
[Corion]: WTF? There is a dev release of Danga::Socket?! I thought that module died a long time ago?! According to its changes, the last release was in 2008 ;)
[Corion]: (and Brad Fitzpatrick long since moved on to Go ;) )
[Corion]: But who am I to worry about necrocpan - I'm revisiting my online banking module, and also I'll somewhat revive WWW::Mechanize:: Firefox, at least if the test suite passes under the Waterfox browser ...
