It's important to keep in mind that the only certification that will matter to people with clues is one that is blessed by Larry Wall himself.
At last, someone knowledgeable eventually confirms the lurking suspicion I have been having for a long time that the nickname TimToady
in fact hides Larry Wall himself.
I even went as far as conducting a little investigation. The only outcome was the revelation that the name TimToady comes from the pronunciation of the good old motto, TIMTOWTDI...
I have been waiting for this particular event long enough to feel some forms of satisfaction... Now I go back and review all my conversations with him to give the obligatory respect...:-)
