All great points, and there are plenty of examples even among geeks where they get caught at a given point and never progress (I work with a very geeky engineer who for the longest time wouldn't move some perl scripts of his beyond perl 4, even though perl 5 had been around for several years, and the time to rewrite would probably have been minimal).

As a chemistry grad student, a couple of my chem profs were near retirement, and just never picked up email or much beyond MS-DOS. The one has gotten into a lot of that since then, the other one, I'm not sure (no one seems to know what happened to him).

radiantmatrix, sorry you had those experiences, that isn't good. Clearly, those folks need to find something else to do. swampyankee, same thing.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
