XP Whoring, Stats Pages, and other Memorabiliaby jcwren (Prior)

It's been a long time since I've mentioned The Stats Pages, so I thought I'd offer an update.
I have added a column to the Monk Stats indicating if the user has a public scratchpad or not, and is part of the sortable criteria. The Main Page also indicates a total of how many monks have public scratch pads.
Don't forget about the Big Monk Map, too! Put the tags in your homenode, and you too can be a famous red dot on an obscure map at an offsite linked page at a famous Perl Monastery. I've noticed quite a slowdown on map points being added, so I imagine that many of the newer members may not be aware of the stats pages. Masem also has a really cool map that shows the center of mass for Perl Monks, located here.
For you XP whores (and you know who you are): If you're desperate to know your XP, and only have a cellphone handy, you can call in to get your stats. See Stats Whoring - The VXML Way for details on how to do this (OK, so it's a blatant plug... Gotta use that TellMe account, or it'll go away for lack of use, though...)
I'd also like to remind people that PerlMonk.org accounts are still available, regardless of what my homenode may convey at this particular moment. It you need or want shell/http/mySQL/python/some_other_stuff access at no charge, please email me at email@example.com.
