in reply to Name Space

My head is hurting, my right eye feels like it's going to pop like a mosquito drinking from an expresso addict with high blood pressure, I want to crawl somewhere damp and dark and quiet and I consider never to touch a keyboard again.

-- `/anick, after hacking all night in TPR02 Perl Golf tournament - cited in The golf course looks great, my swing feels good, I like my chances (Part I)

Leaving things to the last minute as usual, like `/anick, I golfed all night to meet the damned game deadline ... then headed off to work the next morning with zero sleep. Insanity! When I got home that night, I felt exactly as described by `/anick above!

Though we'd never met in person, `/anick and I had become friendly rivals during these crazy all night golfing duels. I remember trying to capture the essence of `/anick's quote in twenty characters, to meet the user name length limit. Sometimes typing the long name is a pest, but it's worth it because I almost never get a false positive when searching for eyepopslikeamosquito!

    Thank you. Ever since I saw your nick the first time, I read it as a compound noun (I'm german) rather than a condensed sentence. I'll sleep better now, knowing about that connection of you and `/anick, rather than feeling that some eyepopslikeamosquito are watching me from afar, after having read some of your nodes...
