is exactly right on this. One of the only nodes I have with negative XP is one of the nodes I learned the most on. tilly
corrected me on basic error handling, and our (tilly
) ensuing conversation via CB ended up changing one of my mindsets and made me a better coder. I left it in that state as a reminder to me, and an example to any other learning monk that might benifit from tilly
rightfully scorching me on simple issue.The other issue I have is that I saw an interesting title today: eWeek article on open source
, however the node did not reference where the other article was. I eventually found it, but a quick edit that said, "Posted earlier, see A Published Special Report on Open Source and Perl Justifications for enterprises
" would have made life much easier.
There are reasons for reaping, but I believe as Tye
does, to much is being reaped and deleted which does not allow others to learn from the posters mistakes."Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!
