hilarious nerd joke warning 

A Perl programmer walks into a bar. “Why the long face?”, asks the bartender.
The Perl programmer responds, “No long face; this is just my regular expression.”

"I'm 35. Should I go back to college? It will help me do the things I want to do, but I'll be 40 by the time I graduate..."

"You'll be 40 by then regardless of what you do."

I've been using Wayland for a couple days now and haven't yet had a reason to revert back to X. Is this the year of the Linux desktop?? 🦆

I can't stop crying, someone needs to do this, if you live near Reston, VA and have a stuffed friend who would enjoy a sleepover (and a stuffed friend's young friend who would enjoy pics and videos of their big night out and a bedtime story via Zoom) please send them for this slumber party and send me all the photos, I can't stand it :flan_piteous::flan_heart:

Calling all Perl/Raku mongers! (long post) 

Tomorrow at 22:30 UTC (that's 17:30 EST) my local Perl users group, DC.pm, are hosting (virtually via Jitsi) some Perl users from Paris (paris.pm). The Jitsi link as at the top of our homepage: dc.pm.org

Jean Forget, who also helped write a French translation of Damian Conway's venerable "Perl Best Practices", is presenting a talk on a Raku project he worked on regarding a kind of picture-book based game called "Ace of Aces" (as well as a general intro to their group Les Mongueurs de Perl which I'm told operates differently than a typical Perl Mongers group). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ace_of_A

Also in attendance will be Laurent Rosenfeld whose excellent O'Reilly book "Think Perl6" (written prior to the name-change to Raku) I am currently reading as a gentle intro to the Raku language greenteapress.com/wp/think-per

Boosts welcome, would love to give these guys a decent sized audience as they're staying up real late to present this to us in the US 😅

How to Use Mastodon: "It's pretty fucking simple." (video)

Similar to how one may choose between the predatory practices of the banking industry or to simply save their money with a local cooperative in a Credit Union, the decision may be made to host your data with known advertising predators or to choose a platform you can trust.

If you're looking for a home or pleasant entrypoint into The Fediverse, eattherich.club currently has capacity to accept more comrades! 🦆
