( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

... and can you please bother to log in?   Heh.

Cosmetic improvements, of course, would be nice ... bring ’em on.   Lord knows that this site could use ’em.   I have also offered many specific suggestions for ways that the site could (IMHO) be made even more useful to me (in terms of searching through decades-old posts) ... none of which suggestions happen to be “cosmetic.”

IMHO, this really comes down to the essential web-site question:   Why are you here?”   For me, and I daresay for a great many other people, that answer is:   because here I can ask almost any question at all about Perl, and in a matter of minutes/hours get a great answer from someone who actually knows Perl.

But wait ... there’s more ...

The other answer is:   because, no matter what it is that is confounding you right now, the odds are very excellent that someone else has beaten his/her head against the very same rock, and talked about it such that you can now avoid repeating the same snafu.   Priceless.™   And you can find it all right here.

I am not apologizing for the site’s present it-sucks visual appearance, nor am I arguing that it should not change, when I say that I can easily tolerate its present suckiness in my daily pursuit for what it can do for me.

Clients pay me to pull rabbits out of my hat.   They do not care where those rabbits came from.
