in reply to When I count, I think of numbers as...

I voted on "spoken words", but in a few rare cases, "other sound" applies too. Specifically, when I have to count some event repeating fast, I don't have time to think of the numbers as I would normally do, I just think of it as beats coming fast like "TUM tum tum tum Tum tum tum tum TUM tum tum" (in base 2, yeah), and then replay them more slowly, counting the beats. This works up to about twenty.

    Now that actually works but, being of musical bent, I tend to do it in 4,4, rather than 8,4, which your example seems to be in.

    That said, I suppose if you were expecting a multiple of seven or five, you could do some esoteric jazz piece

    Although 13 might be pushing it...

[usemodperl]: perl is not broken, perl is being broken by the web being broken by https, for the love of banking apps on free wifi at coffee shops or something...
[Veltro]: Wondering, would it be so hard to write a small application that you can access using http which forwards the request over web ussing ssl?
[Veltro]: are there not even tools for that?
[usemodperl]: the breakage is so fresh i guess not, so it's up to us! :-)
[usemodperl]: someone has yet to make that future famous free http to https proxy written in perl and supported by ads, paypal, patreon, etc to make millions of dollars a minute!
[Veltro]: Why would this be fresh, I recon this is stuff that happens all the time (not Perl per se)
[Corion]: usemodperl: I'm sure you could even code that on the command line.
[usemodperl]: definitely
