    Perl is the aging professor who always seems absent minded and speaks in a sometimes absurdly complicated seeming manner...

No, that's Haskell. Perl's the gruff, impatient first-year prof who's nevertheless beloved by most of his class (the get-a-degree-get-a-job types don't like him, because he won't tell them what's going to be on the final) and seems frighteningly competent in every specialization you (or he) can think of. (And yes, I had such a prof -- several, in fact.)

[Corion]: Sane Dots Supplies - your brand manufacturer for satisfying experiences!
[choroba]: preparing the trip to Vietnam + buying a new car = enough fun
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's a lot of "fun" for one week...
[Corion]: I guess I should stage some product photos for Sane Dots Supplies ;)
[marto]: I had some ideas about that Corion
[marto]: I'll send a message over the weekend maybe :P
[Corion]: choroba: I avoided the "fun" of emergency shopping for a new flat iron by trying the flat iron without the timer that sat between it and the mains power. Seems as if just the timer is broken.
[Corion]: marto: Heh, would be cool!
