    Does this mean that vroom wins a spaceship? I feel another episode of Life at the Monastery. Chapter 1.

    "MONKS ... IN ... SPACE ... Space ... space ... s ..."

    (Hope I had the reverb set correctly.)

    Congratulations to vroom on a well-deserved award for outstanding technical work and service to the Perl Community!

    Now where did we stash the manuscript for the monastery hip-hip-hooray chant...

    ::breaks out noisemakers and alcohol:: Congrats, Vroom! I brought the liquor, now who brought the women?!

    When I get a little money, I buy books. If I have any left over, I buy food and clothes.

      Oy! Don't forget we're in a monastery!

      I'll get Brother BeerBrewer to do some serious nightshifts... And what the heck, we might invite the Perl-Nunnery around for a party!

      Congrats Vroom!

    Congratulations vroom! Very well deserved award. PerlMonks has been the only web-based community where I have felt really "at home", and thus the only one where I have lasted more than a few days with active participation. It's been a great service to a lot of people.

    Now that Mir's going down, maybe we can attract their Investors and finally get some income to support the monestary.

    The Slashdot Cruiser ain't got nothin' on this.
