...it's past midnight (Arizona time at least). Bit of a busy weekend, phew.

You know you've neglected use.perl.org when you finally get to have a proper browse and you realize you've got a plethora of un-read journal entries (not including comments - although most of those are made up of the almost mandatory pudge - autarch arguments - well at least someone is filling in for hfb now that she's moved on)

Along with buying some more fish for the ol' saltwater tank I finally got around to buying "Object Oriented Perl" by Mr Conway. My wife and I spent a good 4 hours in Borders today.

    Basically, I argue with people in order to try to change their mind and achieve some goal I want to see achieved (animal rights, progressive policies, etc.).

    • I don't believe it is boring for you, as you get way to into it. But that's neither here nor there, I suppose.

      Meanwhile, I argue to expand horizons (my own and others), not to convince anyone that I my views are correct. This is why I tried to help you fix logical problems in your arguments, without attacking you or your views over them, because I am more interested in honest debate leading to understanding than beating you in a game or even convicing you that you're wrong.

      I believe understanding and ac
