While browsing through old files, I found an image advocating the use of the strict pragma in Perl. The file date (download date?) was on my birthday in 2005.

So there you go, another reason on why to use strict:

use strict;

  1. Not to be prudish or anything (I can’t control the thoughts of people where I work) but I was kind of expecting that the Ironman Planet feed would remain safe for work.

  2. I consider this image inappropriate, at least when linked from Perl community aggregators; I’d hate for anyone to feel like the Perl community only welcomes people with certain characteristics.

    See http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Acme::Playmate_talk for discussion of a similar incident.

  3. You know, I appreciate that this can seem funny. However, in light of what’s been happening this year in the FOSS sphere in regards to women and inclusiveness I’m hoping you would consider retracting this post.

    Please consider looking up what happened at RailsConf, Kirrily Roberts’ (skud) keynote at OSCON and the resurgence of one ‘MikeUSA’ and reflect a bit.

    The Perl Community should be inclusive as possible and I think things like this don’t help.

    Thanks!

  4. The pics were taken with your camera and you don’t remember it happening? Dude, lay off the sauce. Seriously though, if the Perl community is exploiting girls who know nothing of what’s going on to make cheap quasi porn is very different from if these girls are having a fun joke at their own expense. If it’s the latter case, everyone can get the stick out of their ass. Perl programmers are a diverse group, unlike Java programmers, and I take offense to anyone who would try to homogenize and sanitize it. If we all act really serious and stick together, we are *not* going to get something and the world won’t suddenly take us more seriously or like us better.

  5. To those who feel offended:
    My apologies if you feel that way, but I’m not taking it back.
    I’m not really part of the “the community”. I don’t know what “the community” is, where “the community” is, nor who “the community” is.

    I’m just a regular guy who feels that coding in Perl is enjoyable.
    And have a picture.

    That’s what the post is about.

    Scott:
    IIRC, a friend posted it in his blog… a loong while ago. But I don’t really know where the file came from.

    The file date probably is the download date.
    And, I didn’t take the picture, of course. If that were the case this post would be a rather bragging one.
