( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

When harvesting the original release dates from backpan, I picked up Bleach, Buffy and Smirch ok but for some reason missed Pony. Sorry 'bout that. I've corrected the root node so that Acme::Pony, in addition to being ridden by Buffy, now has a bronze medal hanging around its neck, albeit still one behind Leon.

Re the Buffy riding a Pony thing, according to the Acme::Pony docs, seeing Buffy riding a Pony is "Greg, Leon and Dave's fantasy". I'm assuming that's Greg McCarroll, acme, and davorg. I also found the original historic email announcement of Pony on London.pm (update: and the original email announcement of acme's Buffy module).

And at the risk of teaching you about your own culture, and telling you why you chose the name Pony, the London.pm FAQ has this to say about ponies:

If people think you're acting stressed on IRC, then they may well offer you a pony to stroke, since stroking a pony makes it all better. For more extreme times, there may even be a 'pony drop' of many ponies.
The ill-fated Ponie project didn't arrive until two years later ... announced by Leon I see. Hmmm, I'm starting to see a pattern here. :)
