Paco was one of the earliest public (i.e., not a friend or aquaintance of Tim Vroom) users to join up and ask a legitimate question on Perlmonks. The question pertained to visiting a directory structure recursively.

The answer back in those days was to use File::Find. These days, the answer would probably tend more towards File::Find::Rule or File::Finder, depending on what you wanted to do. They certainly have nicer interfaces. Funny what a difference a few years makes.

Paco sprang to prominence a few years later when Ovid ran a "Vote for Paco!" sig for a while. After the Paco node threatened to take the lead in the Best Nodes thread, demerphq rewrote the best nodes stuff to present a random selection of culled best nodes. We never saw Paco again.

Antivroom. Back in the old days, we made a big fuss about when the site hit 1e5, or 100 000 nodes. Bets were laid. Fortunes were made and lost. I had a question I wanted to ask at about the time of the 99999 rollover, about installing Math::Pari. In my youthful foolishness, I tried to claim the spot.

Of course, I should have known better. Antivroom scored node 100000. I had to settle for node 100001. I suppose this means that I am crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

Which is why it pleases me no end that at the time I write these lines, I am the only voter for antivroom. It makes for a certain sense of closure.

[Corion]: Yay! As I had to reset my phone again, I now also back up my SMS automatically. Highly conveniently, there is a program to back up my SMS to my IMAP server as mails ;)
[1nickt]: Corion this is an android phone? If so, are you encountering problems with recent upgrades? Lately my phone dies suddenly quite often, seemingly coredumps caused by interaction of two actions, eg phone playing a sound and user swiping simultaneously :-/
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, it's Android, but it's CM 11, so fairly old. I'm looking for a newer (china) phone, but I think I'll wait until Oreo ROMs get out for them
[Corion]: Otherwise, the Vernee Mars looks tempting
[Corion]: ... but alas, no Oreo support in sight yet, and I prefer to flash a stock Android over the custom ROMs, and Oreo promises to make the userland more maintainable.
[LanX]: Corion: shouldn't pmdev have permission to view code of nodelets?
[1nickt]: And of course everything is "unlocked" in EU, right?
[1nickt]: I think there are far more choices than in the US
LanX You don't have access to  Function Nodelet.
