in reply to Is it ok to direct non-Perl related questions to the Chatterbox?

Sure, the Chatterbox FAQ says:

Q: What sort of things are discussed in the Chatterbox?

A: Everything and anything!! Topics tend to lean towards perl (naturally). Unix and current events pop up often too, but in general, anything goes.

The topic of the CB is intentionally not restricted, so it's easier to keep SoPW free of off-topic questions.

    Yes... But one thing is to feel free to ask about any topic in the chatterbox and another (slightly different) is to encourage people to post "off-topic" questions. I am glad to see that there is no "off-topic" concept in the Chatterbox. I have been gotten better advices on non-Perl related topics in the Chatterbox than in the official forums of that topics! :-D

    Thanks for clarification

      The population of those on PerlMonks is diverse, both in depth and breadth. That is something that has attracted me to PerlMonks. In addition to the varied areas of knowledge, this also, IMO, helps to generate a diverse set of solutions to any given problem.
