Using goto in Perl is like using a hammer to put in 60 seconds on your microwave. It's overkill, when you have *fingers* that do the job much better.

you said "What happened to the MUD idea? Put on the back burner or what?" to ar0n
ar0n says "Backburner, definitely. I am becoming increasingly convinced Everything was coded by an infinite amount of drunk monkeys in a cubicle farm."

The Acolyte Continues

"The road has been long," I declared, as I sat at the first rest point heavily,
"and some days, it seems that the journey will never end."
I look behind, and can no longer see the point where it started.
The ground where I first strode is so far behind me now.
My memories are there, though. I can still remember
the first program I ever deemed pretty,
the first optimization I ever deemed elegant,
the first technique I ever deemed that I mastered.
I cannot help but smile.
I look forward, and decide to rest later. There's ever more road ahead.
"Some days," I say cheerfully,
"It seems the journey will never end."
