    I'd like to thank everyone who makes PM what it is today. I marvel at the time some of you spend here hanging out, asking and answering questions. I'm glad this is more than JAPW (Just another programming website) but it's all of you that make it happen everyday. There's a lot of knowledge floating around this place and the way you all bring it together makes this a fun and interesting place to hang out.

    So thank you PM users!!!

    That’s enough to make a new book. You could call it “Letters from a wizard and his camel” ;)
      How about "Merlyn in a nutshell"? ;-)
        Damn you footpad, now I can't get the thought of merlyn in an Austin Powers like situation saying, "Help, I'm stuck in this nutshell!"

        ++ for ruining my day :)

        ALL HAIL BRAK!!!

        We've already got the picture for the cover. Now all we need is someone to write up a colophon and we'll be good to go.

Tao of Perl

    Actually as Merlyn is a saint on the order of Lao Tzu, perhaps he can distill his wisdom into "The Tao of Perl" (I assume no such holy book exists).

    A little digging (ok, ok, I looked on merlyns home node) found a thank you note for his 600th post. And it was from September 6th of this year. 50 days later, he has 400 more posts. I've got to say, I am truely impressed and inspired.

[robby_dobby]: Thanks, choroba
[LanX]: yes and Egypt (like Turkey and Russia) belongs to two continents
[choroba]: Also Europe and Asia are geographically one continent, the division is political
[robby_dobby]: I always thought everything on the other side of Suez to be Africa. That's an entire continent
[LanX]: Sinai_Peninsula
[robby_dobby]: choroba: If you're talking of Eurasia, it's only true of the erstwhile Constantinople/ Ottoman empire
[LanX]: yes correct, but Sinai is not on the other side
[LanX]: Organizing a YAPC in a tourist ressort is not a bad idea ...
[LanX]: ... and we could swap to our first YAPC Africa the following year when organizing in Hurghada
[robby_dobby]: LanX: Well volunteered!
