A popular quote goes along the lines of “There is a constant battle between engineers and the universe; engineers are constantly finding new ways to make technology more idiot friendly – the universe is finding new ways to make bigger idiots.

Perl – the swiss army knife

…that takes bloody ages to get open. Now, I’m sorry to be ranting about Perl, but I absolutely despise it; it’s that type of language that you have to install a bajillion things in order to run someone’s script, and invariably, all their script is doing is some menial rubbish that lets you manipulate a […]
