    Hahahahaha. tantarbobus++. I just love crap like this. Never fails to amuse.

    Length of employment1 month
    DescriptionI require a perl/DBI programmer to create a script for my community site at that incorporates all the features of and

      use MySpace; my $ms = MySpace->new(); print $ms->response();

        Almost good, but the interface is still too complicated for laymen. Let's apply the Foo::Simple methodology, and make it

        use MySpace::Simple; pageprint;

    Wow... I'm impressed.

    You might want to warn your readers of what's coming up front, so you don't get the occasinal down vote. Maybe something like

    <humor> ... </humor>


    <absurdity size="oh, simply vast"> ... </absurdity>

    although for this kind of, err, cough, cough, Golf it might be more appropriate to mark it as

    </clue> ... <clue>

    Good night, all.

      Now now, you shouldn't let this guy's unreasonable expectations become a wedge issue. I mean he just wants to join the club of social networking site owners. Then again given the average person's ignorance about programming I guess that's par for the course. Who knows, someone puttering around in their garage may have already written HTML::MySpaceYouTubeClone and just not gotten around to uploading it to CPAN. Or they have but don't want anyone to pin it on them and they get blamed for the hole thing.

      OK I'll stop now.

        Fletch, I think the idea is, first you try to add the myspace features. If you fail, you get a mulligan and then can try for the youtube features.

        I mean he just wants to join the club of social networking site owners.

        Perhaps we need a social networking site for people that run social networking sites?

Only Irons?

    So master your irons, yet every hit from the tee is straight into water? And maybe it's just our gold courses here, but they don't allow irons on the green either.
    You might want to rename your "social networking" site... after you've mastered woods and putting as well, of course!
