Perl Monks purchases Damian Conway in YAPC Auction

(well, just Damian's services at lunch tomorrow)

At the YAPC Auction last night, Damian Conway donated his time and attention for the duration of one lunch, promising to "talk non-stop". Through the combined efforts of particle, Util, chargrill, diotalevi, ChemBoy, zrusilla, and hobbs, along with non-monk John Melesky, our $675 bid won the auction. Our bid was for Damian to attend the PerlMonksBOF lunch tomorrow; we hope all the monks at YAPC will attend.

If we had not bid, he might have come anyway; TheDamian es muy macho monk, and might have super-positioned himself. This way, though, we will have his undivided (fully collapsed quantum wave) presence.

    Wow. I didn't need to promise talking non-stopójust tell a few jokes. Then again, I went for far cheaper, some of which was my own money.

    All-in-all, "a great time was had by all", and some mumble-thousand dollars were raised for TPF. Yeay.

      You didn't raise much money because you refused to have sex with the people having lunch with you :-)
