in reply to poll ideas quest

Update: CowboyNeal.

Which would you rather give up:

  • CowboyNeal
  • Perl
  • ,
  • mustard,
  • or DVD's?

Before Perl, I coded mostly in:

  • Pascal,
  • VB,
  • C,
  • Cobol,
  • Basic,
  • Klingon

When I code, I listen primarily to:

  • CowboyNeal
  • Rock,
  • Pop,
  • Techno
  • Rap,
  • R&B,
  • Oldies,
  • Classical,
  • "Alternative",
  • Kenny G. Rules!,
  • The little voice sings for me.

My job is:

  • full of Perl Monks,
  • Perl Friendly,
  • Perl Hostile
  • Perl Bailey?

Right now, my boss thinks that I'm:

  • CowboyNeal
  • coding,
  • documenting,
  • doing a status report,
  • which boss?,
  • working late..mmm kay?

My primary O/S is:

  • Unix,
  • Linux,
  • BeOs,
  • *BSD
  • Windows,
  • OS/2
  • DOS
  • I wrote my own O/S

I use a:

  • PC
  • Mac
  • Dumb terminal
  • C64
  • Timex Sinclair
  • Rock and stick make noise

Computers have:

  • Made me socially inept
  • Brought me out of my shell a little
  • Made me the HIT of my office
  • given me access to more military plans than I thought imaginable
  • Made me a porn star!

    Very nice! But a couple of choices you missed...
    On the music one... where's techno et al?!?! Don't tell me I'm the only person listening to techno/trance/etc right now..
    On the OS one, you probably should have listed *BSD too. Those weirdos using BSD tend to be odd when you leave them out (Yeah, they could always choose "Unix", but if you have an option for Linux....).


      Hey now. I'm listening to trance (X-Dream) right now on my FreeBSD box. Does that make me a double weirdo?

      Last five songs in my playlist:
      Warren Zevon: Lawyers, Guns and Money
      Veruca Salt: Earth Crosser
      John Barry Orchestra: Theme from James Bond: On Her Majesty's Secret Service
      Red Hot Chili Peppers: Right On Time
      Enya: Carribean Blue

      I'm sure there is Trance coming up. Now, what would I vote??? =)

      $you = new YOU;
      honk() if $you->love(perl)

      He left out jazz, too. Nina Simone, Jane Monheit, and, of course, Thelonius Sphere Monk.</p

    Unfortunately, your polls ideas tend to assume mutual exclusion of things that aren't necessarily exclusive.

    For example, in the last poll, what happens if you're someone who was rendered socially inept by access to computers, but, due to recently being outed as a porn star with acess to military secrets, you're now the hit of your office, which of course, brought you out of your shell a little?

      If you come out of your shell, does that put you into your GUI?

    How could you leave Jazz out of the music list? It is the only thing that keeps me level enough to focus on perl between trips to the coffee maker, ciggarettes, and trips to the bathroom.
