I agree (shock horror) with almost all of the above. However I would like to clarify a bit to bring my analogy in line with your wisdom.

I will define mosquitoes as unneeded interuptions. For example: A co-worker phones to ask you to email him something for a meeting next week. This should not be a phone call which interupts you then and there, but rather an email - which you can deal with whilst in the email client.

Calls about the code are not mosquitoes - rather they are actions like cleaning your gun - tedious but essential.

I suppose I am trying to say that if most people, before disturbing, thought "Hmmm, what will the answer be and how will I get it? Should I ask the question in a different way?" it would be a good thing.

Not even slightly offended - you will have to try harder...

--tidiness is the memory loss of environmental mnemonics

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
