A quick blurb:
  In case you haven't heard, I quit my programming gig and enrolled in law school. Yes law school. No I haven't lost my mind (or if I have then it happened long before applying to such places). I still use Perl though... mostly to help sift through research, but also for side projects. It's amazing how useful programming skills can be. The color of this page, btw, is random. Hit refresh and it should change... Unless, of course, you disabled Javas‎crip‎t. <nos‎crip‎t>Which it seems you did! What have you got against random colors, eh? :-)</nos‎crip‎t> I used to check this site fairly often, but not so much anymore. Ask Tye for my e-mail address if you want to contact me.

The not-quite-obfuscated code below looks cooler on slower machines. If it goes too fast for you, just increase the value of $i in the the second line.


$n=4;($b=>$c=>@_)=(split/$n/=>q/84046541004974109/);$_=&r;sub r{int(rand(26))+97}srand;do{while($_!=$_[$c]){$i=497;$_=($c)? (&r):(ord(uc(chr(&r))));while(--$i){print(#)}$b=74658072;map{ chr$b=>chr)}}print(chr)unless(++$c==$n)}until($c==$n);print$/

Perl Monk Quotes!
  • Tilly: Really, my opinion on optimizing is that it is like running. If you are so eager to run that you start flailing your feet, you will fall over. First make sure you are upright and moving...
  • Merlyn: PHP - it's "Training wheels without the bike"
  • Tye: Don't let someone's proof that some problem is impossible to solve prevent you from solving the problem well enough to get your work done!
  • Kudra: Wierd chatterbox voodoo today.
  • zigster: Dont aspire to be fast .. aspire to be good.
  • jcwren: You have to hold the camel book over your head and loudly say "IIIIiiii Haaaavvvve The Powwwwwwwwer"
  • BrentDax: MY EYES! MY EYES! AHHH!
  • crazyinsomniac: So sayeth Adam, and so it is, and so on, and so forth, and then some.
  • ChemBoy: Sleep is just a poor substitute for Caffeine!
  • Ovid: You're comparing cheese to Wednesday

With more to come!!! Also check out some other monk quotes, and this bit I noticed in the chatterbox once.

By the way, some times its a good idea to view the source of a node. Some people like to embed comments in them. Click here to run a Super Search listing them all.

The best part of the Newspaper is always the comics:
One of the main causes of the fall of the Roman Empire was that, lacking zero, they had no way to indicate successful termination of their C programs.

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it.

MR. FLEISCHER: That's what I do for a living.

Ari Fleischer, Press Secretary for the 43rd President of the United States, During a press briefing on February 5th, 2001

When I tell a robot to get me a beer, I don't want it horsing around. I want it to get a beer.

Joseph F. Engelberger, inventer of the first industrial robot in the 1950's

The purpose of a fish trap is to catch fish, and when thefish are caught, the trap is forgotten.
The purpose of a rabbit snare is to catch rabbits. When the rabbits are caught, the snare is forgotten.
The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten.
Where can I find a man who has forgotten words? He is the one I would like to talk to.
