Pulled up Wikipedia today and saw that today was the day in 1987 that Larry Wall first released perl. Many happy returns, perl.

    The wise Larry will be saddened, if he realizes that his invention is now being used by some people to stop the history.

      Geneva Wall has since grown up and nowadays designs "hacker-safe" mirrors

      strikingly hilarious! ++

      And they test their product daily, too.

      Cheers, Sören
