( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It sounds to me like you are primed to accept the "Worse is Better" ideology. See "Worse is Better" for more on that.

For what it is worth, I don't buy the "Worse is Better" ideology. I just think you are biting off too much in the first round. I think "Worse is Better" goes too far the other direction and all you need is some pragmatism and self control. (:

I also don't see this as a necessary problem of open source. Your problem is just trying to spin too many plates at once (at least this early in the project). Sure, some manager could tell you to focus on "just this" and you'd probably get something working. But why not enjoy the fact that you can tell yourself what part you want to focus on and you'll still get something working.

Just because you don't have a pointy-haired manager looking over your shoulder doesn't mean you don't need some "focus". Be glad that you get to pick the focus, but pick it. :)

Title:
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.
