Very clever!

You need a better symbol/totem than a rosary though. What would a Perl Programmer or Geek use?

A Totem Re: A page from the PM book of prayer

    I suggest a totem both ancient and steeped in tradition: An APL typeball.

    After Compline,
    Zaxo

      Too ancient for me—I've never seen one. My current figet/meditation toy is Silly Putty™. Somehow that's not very reverent, though.

    How about a prayer wheel? More appropriate to some of the Bhuddhist monk imagery we've got, looks like an old printer component, and can double as a foo counter. :-)

      Hmm, I supposed we could make something. Decorate it with APL "runes" and put FOO MANE PADME HUM around the circumference.

      Camel "prayer flags" would work, too.
