comment Is Object Oriented stuff really that important?
Answer the question as to what is OO other than automatic namespacing? And how does Perl implement OO concepts? It's all just semantics and all languages eventually transcend to lists of CPU instructions. You should of course still understand the OO concepts regardless of the language in which you write/implement it.

comment Is there a way to combat Sales perpetually overcommitting?
Can't do #4, you clearly know this. Sales are chasing 100x the prospects of any given active contract.

comment Does having pagination lessens server load? (theory)
@YannisRizos: define "stress on the db". You're still shoving two queries across the line. Are you paginating in the query (a rowcount super-select), or caching results in another tier? There are way too many variables to say there is too much db stress. I would contend that properly done in a transactional sense (do you allow a dirty read/inconsistent count in pages?) increases db "stress"/load but simplifies programming.

comment Do you have any techniques to help you get started in the morning?
We could all only wish this could be possible. For those of us who are either A) classic programmers without much chance for a partner aside us in the morning and/or B) married, we can only dream of such things.

@phresnel, my comment was not to debase the validity of the answer, but an attempt at smack. As you well know, the acceptance of smoking is much greater in Europe than in the States. I'd expect the same response if I stated I walk into my BLM land adjacent to my property and fire off a few rounds for practice too in the morning, acceptance of an activity is at the end subjective :)
