It's fun to watch the Saints in our Book List
, to see how frequently it grows, and keep track of which new members have joined.
Whenever another Perlmonk reaches the list, I try to send them a private message, giving them a "pat on the back", with some words of encouragement. I've gotten lots of nice feedback, and made some new "cyberfriends" in the process.
It seemed like an unusually long time that the list was fixed at 498 members. Finally, just the other day, almut became a "Saint" (really "Curate") to bring the total to 499.
And tonight, been42 has reached the List, bringing the total to an amazing 500 members. A remarkable milestone!
