Request #1: I've coded my interests meme (see previous entry) & it works but is quite slow (2-4 minutes running time for most users). Would any of the more experienced perl programmers on my friends list like to take a look & see if there are any obvious tricks I'm missing (warning in advance to anyone who likes their code elegant - I'm very much a 'bash it til it works' coder)
Edit: Now have several suggestions in hand - now I need to decide which to adopt and mak the changes- it may be a few days before I have time.

Request/Offer #2: I have a spare ticket for a recording of The Now Show this Thursday (got 2, but vectorious is now going to be in Northampton for work that day & not back in time.) Would anyone like to join me? (doors open 7:15pm and it's at the Drill Hall, near Goodge St tube station)
Edit: Looks like vectorious will be able to make it after all

I'd be happy to take a look -- while my Perl is pretty spotty, I might be able to suggest algorithmic improvements. ('Perl' was the one interest your script got wrong, for me.)

I tried this twice. After I waiting 7-8 minutes for my list to come up, it finished with no "completed" after "extracting their interests" and no interest list.

Sorry to hear that. I'll take a look at it in the next day or so and see if I can fix that or at least print a helpful message saying what the problem is.

It was probably busy. I tried in the middle of the night and it worked ok.

*hopeful* Is the Now Show ticket still available? :) I'd like to go with you! I went there once before and really enjoyed it! (Let me know ASAP as I'd have to move pizza with doseybat to next week)

And your interests script is fab! :)

vectorious now thinks his meeting might finish in time for him to make it after all - he's going to get back to me with a definite answer one way or another this afternoon.

Thanks for the offer though and it will be lovely to see you either then or on Saturday depending.

:)

Sadly for you (but happily for vectorious) he's now fairly confident of making it.

We must try to do it another time though...

I would be happy to take a look at it.

You've probably got a surfeit of coders now, but I'd be interested to see your script too if you're agreeable.
