“If this power could be used for good, it wouldn’t be this power.”— Teresa Nielsen Hayden
“I’m sorry, Dave, I can’t do that.”
“You really shouldn’t use that any more. It’s bad for you.”
“The rationale for this decision is that CGI.pm is no longer considered good practice for developing web applications, including quick prototyping and small web scripts. There are far better, cleaner, quicker, easier, safer, more scalable, more extensible, more modern alternatives available at this point in time. These will be documented with CGI::Alternatives.”
No documentation found for “CGI::Alternatives”.

“Let me build this strawman that doesn’t actually make good use of
CGI.pmto show you how you can easily switch to one of half a dozen different frameworks that let you use half a dozen different templating systems launched with half a dozen different embedded web servers, and replace your self-contained 100-line CGI script with half a dozen files located in half a dozen directories. For more fun, my sample code gets mangled if you try to view it as a manpage, so you really should download the raw file from CPAN.”

I think you’re pushing your personal kinks a little too hard.
You’ve spent the past two weeks being yelled at by a user for not getting their external partner’s incoming connection to work
and you’ve had a
tcpdump running for an entire week showing
that no connection attempts have been made from the IP addresses
the partner provided
and they schedule a conference call at a time that’s convenient for the partner’s third-world contractors
and they confirm their IP addresses in the chat but the test fails again
tcpdump shows them coming in from a completely different
and they start to wrap up the meeting saying they’ll contact their network team who hadn’t been invited and reschedule for the next day
and you have to yell into the microphone to tell them to try again right now since you’ve just added their real IP address to the firewall
and they confirm that it works but continue talking about who’s going to do what and how they will communicate the results and who will be responsible for the next step and oh fuck who cares you stopped listening two minutes ago
and you close the multiple tickets created by the user who doesn’t understand that CC’ing the helpdesk on every email keeps creating new tickets
and the partner emails a list of 26 possible IP addresses that does not include the two they originally claimed were the only ones they use
and then they try to schedule another meeting anyway and you reject the invite twice
and you go back to bed.
…and reach for earplugs because the neighbor puts his dog out when he goes to work and it barks and whines all day long and sounds remarkably like one of your users.
That is, “when you hear these words, you know it’s safe to stop taking someone seriously”. In no particular order:
What did I leave out?
(note that it is possible to use some of these words and phrases in a way that is not meaningless blather, but that’s not the way to bet)
(linking to an article on an “SF” site that must come with a built-in fainting couch; seriously, the brief excerpt starts with this hilariously nonsensical statement: “the heterosexism goggles, which derange content via chauvinist interpretive paradigms”)
…so here’s a nice pair of melons.
I need to order these for me and my sister, for our next trip to Japan…
Never mind the general babehood and the token mod-black-chick amazon in the background, check out the uplifting fashions our heroes and their captor are sporting. Paradise Island’s lingerie shops clearly feature Sufficiently Advanced Technology, enough so that I wonder if the Invisible Plane was just a spinoff product.
