shenme coughs up his name

After a recent pumice-laden afternoon a post by Corion inspired me:

votes are monk shadows
xp but poor reflection
pray, participate
and then I found Bare Errors which kinda illustrates my point - back and forth, give and take, all receive.


Figured I'd capture a few PMungencies:

Going the wrong way is fatal. pg
Any web designer who assumes that the general public has the eyesight of a 20 year old should be fired. With prejudice. tilly
<BUU> nods rapidly at shenme and backs away slowly
... (or it was something like it - I don't fully remember the exact details now, they are lost in the anals of axkit history) ... Matts
<Wassercrats> Anyone recall if gmpassos hates me? I need tinyperl support, and I don't know if I should trust him with my email address.
<tye> If StarTrek were made today, they'd always be editting XML to hack things instead of un/replugging 'hot' cables and reversing polarity
<Intrepid> Tell them "Soren Andersen in Buffalo, NY really likes Perl". That ought to be enough for them ;-)
<Hagbone> if brains were muscles, regex's would be a prescribed workout

Wow! vroom, speaking on the CB!

Here's a bumper sticker we WISH we HAD seen: "Quantum Chromodynamicists Do It Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strangely and with Charm!"
<munged> ideals? pah. what good are ideals compared to a soft hyphen?
<talexb> wonders who changed the vowels on his keyboard around.
<tye> unexpected vowel movements--

<injunjoel> greetings all, Are there any statisticians out there?
<merlyn> On the average, no

diotalevi Oh. I just wouldn't.
Tanktalus: jZed: I didn't claim atrocities didn't happen. I claimed that the atrocities that did happen were more enlightened than anything else going on at that time.
xdg: Economics says that people are rational -- but not that they are good at math. Re^3: Where are all the Perl programmers?]

    ooo what's the punchline Moriarty?!

    Because they should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason. :)

    Moriarty++. Classic :-D

Good grief, I read a number from a file (external file! eek!) and used the number in a filename. The read data was tainted, now the filename was tainted, so the rename() blows up.
Zaxo 2006-09-25 21:25:15-04
hey, that's a good thing!
shenme 2006-09-25 21:25:30-04
If elections had taint checks, we'd never find anyone good enough to be elected.
McDarren 2006-09-25 21:26:37-04
and that would also be a good thing!
BerntB 2006-09-25 21:26:53-04
I tought taint checks what was the press did in election-time?
shenme 2006-09-25 21:28:20-04
So is this a different way of looking at the common reason used for skipping error checks, "good enough for government work" ?

Hmm, Googlism says "shenme is based on interacting with the environment and putting things to use". Yeah, right, but sleep intervenes much too often.

I found this quoted section within a /. anony-posting. Was there ever a language/system/methodology that this wasn't true for? Not in the advertisements for the new 'wonder', but in the actual practice of it?

If there's any downside, it's that it requires really good programmers. It's not a methodology that is well-suited for a situation that supports people who are, for the lack of a better term, "vocational" programmers, or tool-users.
