in thread OT: PerlMonks Brewers

Actually, SQL questions and PHP questions are frequently answered here. Moreso SQL questions or how to set up servers ( timeouts, connections, etc. ) along with questions about Operating Systems, compiling versions of Perl, and a lot of other things... The fact that questions like this aren't met with "OFFTOPIC ALERT! GO AWAY!" is what keeps people here... Remember, Perl is a glue language. People working in Perl are going to see a lot of different other languages, and Perl programmers, I would say, have a lot more experience with multiple different platforms, systems, software, and protocols than any other programming group. Perl programmers also seem a bit classier, as a whole, and I don't think a topic of brewing beer is inappropriate at all. If you don't like it, Anonymous Monk, don't read it.

I, for one, say ++!
