I find fault in the presumption that more of us are unemployed than using Oracle. ;-)

More seriously, and leaving aside the transient/permanent issue (though I do think it's an important one), I personally find the connection between "solving technical problems encountered while using Perl" and "solving technical problems encountered while using MySQL" to be stronger than the connection between the former and "seeking employment based on my existing Perl knowledge." Obviously, both are stronger than the connection to "seeking employment as a database administrator," but that particular question is not on the table.

This is somewhat tangential to the point I was trying to make, however, since the antecedent of "this" was not SkipHuffman's post (which I cheerfully ignored until it became a subject of controversy), but rather "nurturing small businesses", which I positted in response to dragonchild's apparent assertion that Perlmonks had an affirmative obligation to encourage entrepreneurship. With which assertion I (as you might guess) disagree.

If God had meant us to fly, he would *never* have given us the railroads.

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.
