Hackathon war story

[ #32555 ]

So, there I am, on Friday night, sitting next to Luis, trying to install Act on my laptop. Starting from scratch, by compiling my Perl, my mod_perl and Apache.

$ cd ~/src/perl-5.8.8
$ sh Configure -Dprefix=~/local -des
...
$ make && make test && make install
$ ls ~/local/

Nothing? Mmm...

$ cd ~/src/perl-5.8.8
$ ls \~
bin  lib  man

Oh. Stupid me, Configure didn't expand the ~ like I thought it would. Well, let's get rid of this.

$ rm -rf ~

"Are you sure you want to do this?" asks Luis... OH CRAP.

So every participant of the hackathon is making fun of me, now. Well, you can't always choose the reason why people will remember you. ;-)
