Perl 5.14 Released

EEPS For me Perl is alive and well. (187 comments)

Despite what many are saying, Perl is still used extensively even for new projects. I use it daily, and while I really like ruby and python, for a variety of reasons, I have not switch away from Perl for most projects. My only question is when will Strawberry Perl 5.14 be released?

EEPS Chairs? (405 comments)

Ha, I have an Aeron chair at work and guess what, its not that great. I still get back pain sitting in it all day. I did not even notice it was one for about a month after I started. Those chairs are mostly hype. Many studies (and my personal experience) shows that the act of sitting on your ass all day is not good for you. Spending $700 on a chair will not fix the fundamental problem. I don't know how to improve the situation, except maybe having kids standing and using desks at arm level, but I don't think buying new chairs will help anyone except the furniture salesmen.

EEPS Escape Reality? (577 comments)

Hmm... I always thought that video games were designed to ESCAPE reality. You know... that reality that I suck at pretty much everything, and can never get ahead in? Of course I could be wrong about this... As I am usually wrong about everything else... Oh well, I'm gunna go play some video games now :)
