"C gives you enough rope to hang yourself with, but warns you that you probably don't want to knot it that way. Perl gives you the rope, ties a noose in the end, blindfolds you, and stands you on a rickety chair."

"Don't forget, there's more than one way to do it in Perl. Perl also hands you a loaded gun, a bottle of pills and a glass of water, and does it all on a tall bridge. Oh, and a bottle of gasoline and a lit match. (thanks, captcha, 'burned', for reminding me of that one.)"

I'm enjoying a bit of geekiness here in the Computer Science lab. I've logged into my laptop from my lab machine, and forwarded X11 apps back to the lab machine so I can run Everybuddy (my AIM client) on the laptop, but have it display on the lab machine. That way I'm able to do everything with the nice monitor, but I get the program and the logs and stuff where I want them. Similarly for forwarding my web browser (because the one we have here in the lab is inferior, and doesn't have my bookmarks), and reading my e-mail. This is really cool!
