in thread Why I hate Perl (discussion)

It looks like we're arguing the same things here footpad. I'm glad to hear that because, well, this thread is pretty tiring.

I guess people who are familiar with my recent postings (like tilly) would know that I am NOT an admin at this site, but I have been at the past. So what I'm experiencing now is empathy and sympathy for the SysAdmins because the developers here are... well... I would say awful, but I like them as people. Perhaps misguided is a better term. My job at this site has to been come in and provide new dialogue between the testers and the developers, and audit code that is broken. In the course of that, I wind up writing new code. Which just reinforces how much "good code" (as you and I write) is better than "bad code" (which I see more of every day).

I've gotten a few private /msg's from people who did not understand the context of the root node of this thread. I had assumed that people were familiar with my ongoing exploits. For the full story, please see my most recent threads. I will perhaps update this node later to include links to particular nodes. I am exhausted (and unfortunately developed a cold) at the moment.
