( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Mine's pretty easy. 'Brent' is my RL first name, and 'Dax' is the name of my favorite Star Trek character. I picked it up after warnings from my parents (I started using Prodigy sometime in elementary school) that there were Scary Bad Men on the 'Net, and that I should be careful and not use my real name anywhere. It also has the added bonus of sounding like a real name. (I've actually had mail and packages and stuff sent to me addressed 'Brent Dax'--I use the name almost religiously. Of course, I've also had stuff addressed 'Don Hessel' sent to me--I have no idea how that name got associated with my address.) Somewhat unfortunately I've started using it in serious programming efforts at a time where I'm getting close to job-getting age and would probably find a bit of...prestige isn't the right word, but is the right idea...useful, so I'm considering dropping the nick on p5p and p6*.

--Brent Dax
There is no sig.

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.
