It was only a short while ago I found out about paco, and his story at Perlmonks.

Ok, now I'm curious. What is paco's story, or is the lone 557XP question all there is?

    paco posted a single question and was never seen again. Sometime after that, Ovid started a campaign to make paco a Saint by trying to get every monk to vote for paco. It's succeeding quite nicely, given that paco has only one node to vote on. (It is the second highest-ranked node of all time.)

    Update: I'll happily stand corrected. Erudil's node is the singularly most-recognized piece of Perl code.

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
      Thankfully, this node still ranks higher. Now that I think about it, I wish I could have voted for Erudil.

    The myth continued

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    As I've heared, he was the first real visitor of perlmonks, he posted a question first after the opening of The Monastery Gates. Everyone before him cound as natives, not visitors.
