Keep It Simple, Stupid

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I suppose I'm somewhere between a coder and a hacker. Programmer sounds a bit too formal to cover what I do. I haven't had the formal CIS training, so my whole approach to programming is just kludged together anyway.

What I need is more money. And more time.

I want interesting problems that can be solved with computer programming, processes that need fixing, questions that need answers. I need a large room full of books and resources for study and research. And then I need the time--long stretches of time so I can work without interruption. I want reasonable deadlines to keep me on task, but not stringent enough to force me into taking slippery short-cuts instead of doing things the right way.

And it would be nice to have a roomful of real-life Monks down the hall from me that I could visit when I need to brainstorm something or when I need to have my code reviewed. In the meantime, perlmonks-the-website is the next best thing.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
