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

Like most adolescent Internet geeks, I started out using "cool" Fantasy nicknames, usually my favourite character from whatever series I'd read most recently. Of course, changing one's handle every month or so isn't precisely consistent. For a while, when I was just posting to course newsgroups at university, I was just using my real name. I'm not sure why I decided to change back to a handle for PerlMonks.

That said, "Foxtrot" and "Uniform" are military, aviation, or civilian radio words to represent the letters "F" and "U" over noisy radio connections (try distinguishing "dee" and "tee", or "em" and "en", over a staticy radio link sometime...). Predictably, they stand for "f*cked up" (hey, I have to grow old; I don't have to grow up!). While that describes me distressingly often, it's really taken from the title of a computer game I've been developing in my spare time, and I thought it would make a good moniker.

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.
