    As did the TCO, having the psychological sensibility of a tank ..

Ah. I can relate to this. After having two great reviews (and bonuses) a few years back, I hit a bad patch where my collapsing marriage was affecting my work output (shocker). My team lead (a good friend at the time) helped me through that, taking me out for supper and asking the all important "Are you OK?" question. So it came as a bit of a surprise (typical British upbringing making light of a difficult situation) when this big boss (not my team lead) told me in my annual review "You're not getting any bonus this year. How do you feel about that?"

Gee, I don't know. Miffed? Disappointed? Aloof? Light as a feather? Perplexed?

Don't worry .. no doubt you did your best, given the resources available to you. You may even be surprised that some of your work continues to be used by future, grateful developers. There's Perl work out there if you want it, I'm sure.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
