in reply to Who pays Larry Wall?

I can't guarantee this is true, but here's the scuttlebutt:

I heard that Larry is paid via cannisters of cash lobbed through time by future Perl 6 developers.

Also, if he needs to, he can survive off of residuals from his mustache.

Cheers,
Matt

    Clearly you've never visited the Junior Museum and Zoo
      No I have not. I'll make a point of visiting Bobcat Ridge next time I'm out that way.

      It wouldn't surprise me in the least, however, if Larry actually is involved with the project. It seems worthy.

      Cheers,
      Matt

[oiskuu]: So, how long did it take you to grow up?
[oiskuu]: Have you ever had your temperature taken from the other end?
[marto]: I read about a case where people were at a launderette, or whatever they're called in the US, and as a joke, put their toddler in with the washing, then closed the door
[Your Mother]: (Work in progress.)
[marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
[marto]: oiskuu sadly yes
