  • Thanx for the long report, but you don't need (more) games, you need a life. Yes, that's right - a life - and a quality life makes even $work more interesting :-).
    Here in Melbourne (Australia, not that like-named dump in Florida, ha, ha, ha) my Perl code helps manage almost 11,000 (sic) network routers for Telstra (Aust-wide phone/internet company). What Perl needs, here, and what it's got, is a superb reputation for delivering what's required, and games are not required. What's even better, games are simpl
    • In your reply, games are, apparently:

      * Something I worship
      * Something I use to escape reality
      * Something of no benefit to Perl's corporate reputation

      My original point was that a community cannot grow and thrive without something to be excited about -- some way, besides the banalities of corporate work, to be marketable, relevant, and interesting. Your argument has nothing to do with my argument. You might as well have responded "chicken!".

      That's well enough. Slashdot has set the norm for online debate --
  • Hey scrottie, I'm glad our little chat about emulation/gfx stuck with you. I had actually said an NES emulator (see my Games::NES::ROM module :) -- it was pretty loud in the room, but that explains why i gave you a strange look when you said 65816 and not 6502 :)
    • You might also be interested in the perl spectrum emulator as an interesting starting point. It's still a bit slow - doing all that register work in perl is a bit painful compared to a CPU.
  • Well, somebody had to do it.

    And down you go. You're a foe from now on.
  • Somehow, you "seizing up with fright" at giving a presentation doesn't jibe with the model of you that I have from reading your posts.

    I'm the same way, though. Although I realize it's illogical.

  • I gabbed with cwest and chromatic a bit -- I'm not good at connecting with people (heh, you might have noticed).

    I've never found you particularly anti-social in person. You'd probably have to jump over the table and strangle me for me to dislike you though. I'm all for healthy disagreement with intelligent people who are willing to listen to what I say. It's the nuts who can't listen that drive me crazy.
