Programming is fun again with Perl.

All original source snippets I post on Stackoverflow.com and other sites in the StackExchange network are dedicated to the public domain.

I also post my thoughts on economics, politics and strategy on and programming related articles on ν42.

comment Why am I getting 'ppm: Command not found' on Mac OSX after installng ActiveState Perl?
OK, I don't mean to offend you, but I think you've put the cart before the horse. You should learn how to use the computer and operating system you chose before taking up programming. Otherwise, it is going to be very, very, very, very frustrating for you.

Also, once you boot with a freshly installed XP, the computer WILL BE BUSY downloading updates for a while. You might want to try to grin and bear it while that's going on.

Which is why I am suggesting you might want to upgrade it. You are starting with a tiny old drive. Given the low memory, there is probably some swapping going on. Can you post screenshots of the "Processes" and "Performance" tabs in Task Manager and the model of the hard drive shown in Device Manager?

Sorry, neither local machine nor current user run entries point to anything. Besides, I want to get rid of all traces of the this thing.
