  • You'll rock when it will do that in at least 10 different languages and a variety of calendars. :)

    • I know you meant it in jest, but this is the sort of thing that I really hate about the Perl community, and that draws me away from it. So quick to cut people down. I'm guilty of it too, I know, but it really does suck.
      • One with so sharp a tongue and so large an ego shouldn't be so sensitive...or should start remembering how it feels on the other side. And yes, I was kidding. :)
