You know, the amazing thing is that all high-ranking PerlMonks happen to be multiple instances of a single feat of programming: Chatbot::Eliza. Various personalities were generated by vroom. Those which turned out to be too volatile have been disconnected from the network somewhere along the way, or at least given only limited shares of processor time, to keep them quieter. CowboyNeal programmed vroom entirely in assembler on an array of fifty Timex Sinclair 2000's, which communicate with one another via cassette tape port.

    I hope that jesuashok realises that this is a jape perpetrated by the bot davido.

    The real story is that vroom arose as the result of a quantum fluctuation in a landfill containing all MicroSoft's original IBM PCs back in about 1995. Since that time ground water seepage formed a natural connection to underground communication cables in the area, and the rest (as they say) is history.


    DWIM is Perl's answer to Gödel
      I am very pleased to conclude that most of the bots here (no human beings, right?) are writen entirelly in Perl, inlcluding me (though I tend to rewrite myself in Ruby soon).


        Nope ... no humans here!
