in reply to poll ideas quest

  • How many times you tried convincing non perl programmers to give it a try (5 or less, 10, 20, 40, 50+)
  • How long it takes you to explain (RE|OO|...) to a newbie (5 or less, 10, 20, 40, 50+)

  • How many perl tutorials you have written (or attempted to write) (5 or less, 10, 20, 40, 50+)
  • Reasons why you think people should give you your perl books back ASAP
    1. So you can borrow em to other people
    2. They look nice on your bookshelf
    3. So you can brag how many perl books you have
    4. So you can read em again, and again and again
    5. So you know which ones you don't have yet
    6. You like the smell of used books
  • Where/when do you think about code?
    1. Work (during coffee break, during work, during meeting,..)
    2. Bathroom (in bath tub, while brushing teeth, while peeing,...)
    3. Bedroom (while trying to get some sleep, during sex,...)
    4. Other places (park, while driving home, while jogging,...)
    5. I dont think about that stuff, I just code

    ... Quidquid perl dictum sit, altum viditur.

      Avoid poll ideas that beg the question. I don't have perl books, and if I did, I'd let people borrow my copies indefinately.
