  • I apparently did miss it. In fact, I did not even see the word "Bush" in "it". Is the word Bush there in TorgoX's post? Or might TorgoX be concerned about the balance of payments and profligate spending by the US?

    You tell me. Or maybe TorgoX sneakily changed his posting. Maybe I need to check the Google cache.

    Help me here, maybe I missed it.

    And I even looked at the links TorgoX cited, rather than just looking at what he wrote and what he quoted. Mr. Buffett did not appear to use the word "Bush" eit
    • Is it possible that you are putting words into his post that are not there?

      Not only is it possible, it is common [perl.org].

      Might you be a little oversensitive about something?

      You can tell if he yawns or claims you are boring [perl.org] him. (Something that can be done by simply presenting facts)

      And, if you aren't careful, he'll start resorting to personal attacks [perl.org].
      • Thanks for your comments and links, phillup. But in all the excitement of you and pudge going to the races, pudge might have forgotten to comment on my original post.

        I don't post too often. I guess it makes each one seem precious. Maybe not precious, but thoughtful. Well, maybe not thoughtful, but rare.

        pudge sure is a damn good perl dude. I wonder if a damn good perl dude could put up a meta-page of when torgox mentions pudge, and when pudge mentions torgox. I tried googling:

        +torgox +pudge site:per
        • pudge sure is a damn good perl dude.

          No arguments there.

          I actually used his book [ptf.com] on MacPerl for a while to teach Perl. Like many things "Mac", it was much easier than on other systems. Part of that was because of the very nicely done book.

          I wonder if a damn good perl dude could put up a meta-page of when torgox mentions pudge, and when pudge mentions torgox.

          I was thinking of something similar when trying to look back and figure out what the hell set him off about me... different characters of course. (me instead of torgox)

          Anyways, it seems to me that the best solution would be adding a navigation link at the bottom of a user's "info page" (here's mine [perl.org]) so an interested person could look at all of a person's comments.

          You can see 24 of 218 comments that I have made... but I haven't found a way to view the remaining comments.

          I think that would be a nice feature.

          Something similar to what is at the bottom of the "journal page" (like this [perl.org])

          My head hurts. On the right.

          Really?

          I've never had a right side / left side headache!

          I wonder if that is common...

          Mine are always front or back.
          • Well, it looks to me that my work here is done. Mr. Nandor might disagree, but here is what I believe I have accomplished in four posts.

            I provided Mr. Nandor with an opportunity to realize that torgox had said nothing about Bush in the cited post. DONE.

            I noted Mr. Nandor's perl prowness. DONE.

            I expressed the hope that Mr. Nandor would educate me, from his personal knowledge, or by citation, about the racism of Che Guevara. DONE. (I get educated in the most unusual places- it is a nice thing about bei
