No offense intended and none received. If you think what I wrote was bad, you should have been on the CB a few months ago. Malicious PM gossipers were accusing Merlyn of being a transvestite! Can you imagine? (It's not true, is it?)
Speaking of Merlyn, where is he? I haven't seen him post in awhile. I always thought that he had the hacker ethic that Pekka Hekkonnen writes about. I mean, Merlyn is a pretty big man in the Perl world, but he took the time to hang out with guys most of whom know a lot less than he does because it was fun to talk about Perl.
Tres cool. What if we all did Perl for 20 years? Would we all know as much as Merlyn/Tilly/Tye and yes, "Abigail."? In my case I think my gas tank would keep getting topped off and the extra Perl knowledge would run out onto the pavement.
