Hey everyone, I posted this node a while back, and while waiting for replies, I went ahead and had these mugs printed. As for the syntax on the mugs, take a look at merlyn's explanation here RE: JAPH
The colors are a bit hard to see in the photos, they are actually a bit darker. Hunter green, navy blue (almost black), white and marroon. The lettering is a really bright sort of metallic gold. When I get a chance, I will get some better pictures up.
Yes the lettering is very shiny
Yes the mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe
Yes they are guaranteed not to rust, warp or affect the ozone layer
No I do not as yet know the chemical composition of the ceramic
I will post an update when I get the lab results back
The syntax used was traced back through the history books and was found to conform to the standards set forth by the original wizard who coined the term (including the comma)
I have to agree with growlf on this: A "metric buttload" is a unit of measurement of which I was not aware, but clearly should have been. Can we get some more detail on this? Is this a unit of volume or mass? Is the NIST aware of it and do they have a gold standard for it in their possession? (That's quite a mental image, isn't it?)
Well, depending upon the price, I probably can't afford a metric buttload of PM mugs, but if you will sell them in other units sign me up for a metric centibuttload of them.
Whose butt is the standard for a metric buttload? TIA jg _____________________________________________________ If it gets a little bit out of hand sometimes, don't let it fool you into thinkin' you don't care.TvZ
Anything on the other side? The mug looks very good, especially since I have large hands and it looks like the handle can accommodate all of my fingers (all 5 of 'em! ;)). Seriously, that's a pet-peeve of mine - mugs with tiny handles that force you to explain why your pinky is hanging out to amused co-workers.
I only have 1 mug and it's broken ;(it's a simpsons mug), so I want 4 (like the 4 in the picture). But since I'm paranoid, I'll have to get mine from blakem (he was kind enough to agree; we'll trade at a silicon valley perlmongers meeting).
I really like the mug design, but I was wondering if there is more text on the other side of the mug - "Just another Perl hacker" is followed by a comma, which made me think that. Should that comma be a period?
