Help, help!
I'm being haunted.
Everytime i come here, redmist is always here, waiting for me, taunting me.
Ever since May 4, 2000 he has been doing this.
He never leavs me alone, and I don't know how to get rid of him.
And it's always the same message "I don't think so"
Please somebody help meeeee.
If i hear him say that one more time i'll never come back here again.
Somebody please stop him.
How does he know when I'm here?
Why meee?

For those of you without a sense of humor, no i am not stupid, and yes this is a joke.
It only potrays my first few weeks at the monastery, before i read the Site How To.
The monastery can be very scary for some people, and this is one of the reasons why. ;-)

some guys weren't sure what i was talking about so here's what. /tell or /msg user message, delivers a message to user, and that message appears to user on top of the chatterbox with a checkbox next to it.

Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void
perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
