When I have first read the Perl Monks web site, I was
under the impression that it was modelled like a
Tibetan monks monastery. Just like Terry Pratchett's
novel The Thief of Time
that I had read a couple of
months before that. So I adopted the name, or rather
the nickname of a character of this book, the Sweeper.
Actually, although he usually appears with a broom in his
hands, this character is a wise man, but with a
very unconventional wisdom.
By the way, I am not Jarkko in disguise. I am
another Pratchett fan who happens to be
also a Perl fan.
I just found that there is another monk
coming from Discworld: gaspodethewonderdog
