in reply to New mascot for Perl

I think a Swiss Army Chainsaw could probably be drawn pretty easily, possibly with an assortment of other unlikely blades. Honestly, though, I think I like Abigail's suggestion of a platypus the best.

    Yeah, a platypus would be good, now someone just needs to draw it....

      Agreed. Preferably a little cartoony, so not to be confused with other famous O'Reilly platypuses [sic].

[Corion]: marto: Yeah - on a whim I bought two or three back then, but now that I'm comfortable with putting LineageOS on them, they are not for sale anymore ;)
[Corion]: It's a difficult thing, timing your purchases so that alternative ROMs are available and stable just when the devices go on clearance sale :)
[Corion]: Maybe I should work more on my "price monitoring" framework, or talk to friends to get historic price data for gadgets and employ Machine Learning to predict "device goes on final sale" events :)
[Corion]: That might be a fun project but I have to talk to people on how to best get at historic price data if that's available at all :D
[Corion]: Also, I'd like to avoid (well, do I?) situations like with Le Eco, who went bust and all of their devices went on sale. But they had AOSP for their device already, so that was good.
[marto]: Meh, looking at prices, I may just get a cheapo Chinese Intel and stick linux on it :/
[Corion]: marto: Prices for what? Cheapo tablets? Cheapo notebooks?
[Corion]: I think there is an Asus Chromebook that works with Linux and is quite good. $boss has it, I think, but it's still EUR 400 or so...
[Corion]: (too much IMO to give it into the hands of kids ;) )
