  • Why not wait until Perl6 is a reality to worry? There are *plenty* of people still using OS 9 though, for obvious reasons, development has mostly ceased on a dated platform. There are plenty of others things to worry about now :)

    • And I still use MacOS 8.6...

      Damn I need to upgrade my gf's iMac.

      • And what's this "No Score +1 bonus" thingy?

        • If you have enough karma, you can give your comment an extra point. You can turn it off by default in your comment preferences. If you get moderated down after giving yourself an extra point, then it is more damaging to your karma, or something.
          • Aw crap. I've been setting that for a few comments and such and those comments are probably going to get slaughtered by the mods. Thank goodness we have such lovely people here =)

            • No, I think you are backwards. You want to check the box to NOT get the bonus.

              I strongly recommend everyone who has the bonus goes to comment prefs [perl.org] and checks "No Score +1 Bonus". It's only the default; you may deselect the checkbox on any given post to get the bonus.

              Further, while you're there, you can check out some other new options, like changing the size of your comment box, giving extra (or fewer) points to friends/foes or comments marked as interesting/insightful/whatever, etc.
              • Since we're talking about the posting system ;)

                How come when I posted to a thread where I had also moderated, it said "Removing moderation from comment #1234"? My understanding was that I the moderation stays when I post; it's only that I can't moderate in a thread *after* I've posted to it.
