May your next 50 years be at least as pleasant and interesting as the past ones!

You will be wandering through them maybe with less physical strength and vigour, but with more wisdom and insight. May your labouring be as valuable as it has been since, and to the benefit of yourself and all those who cross your ways. And may you remain a highly honored member of the perl community, which you helped building, for the benefit of all of us.

    merlyn: If you read this, I hope you're aware of the number and extent of lives you've impacted for the better with your books and never-ending championing of the Perl cause.

    Happy 50th.

    I can certainly vouch for him at the moment --- he is doing anything but laboring today. :)

    Time for an update... time to remind the benevolent public that this perl craftsman finished another trip around the sun.

    Nice to have you here, merlyn.

    I understand his upcoming Perl coaching tour is being sponsored by Metamucil. I heard a rumor that he's added some fitness routines to these new classes.

    Wow, 50! So little older and so much wiser than me

    Happy anniversary, Merlyn.

    And it came to pass that in time the Great God Om spake unto Brutha, the Chosen One: "Psst!"
