I wonder how you can then say stuff like

I can almost guarantee this whole site wasn't written in Perl.

I suggest that you become more cautious in what you're willing to claim to be true.

    Of course he couldn't guarantee it; but he did say "almost", so I cut him that slack. :-)

    Anyway, I think it's fair to say his guess was spot on. The site is not written entirely in Perl. There is a non-negligible about of SQL; and of course all the markup being flung around.

    But I do wonder: When he says that wasn't what he expected to hear, what was he expecting to hear? That it is written in 10% Perl, and 80% Java? Or what?

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      It sounds like he also does not know that PM dates back to 1999, because given that knowledge, Perl would seem like the obvious choice.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
