( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Perlmonks is quickly approaching node #200,000. In the spirit of PerlMonks Deadpool I'd like to continue the tradition with a repeat contest.

It's simple really. Guess what the timestamp on node 200,000 will be.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The entry deadline has now (GMTime: Tue Sep 17 22:10:15 2002) passed. No more guesses will be accepted. Better luck next time.

  • Times are in Eastern, the same as shown on the nodes themselves.
  • Closest one in absolute time wins. (10 seconds late is better than 3 minutes early)
  • Once we reach node 198500 no more entries will be accepted.
  • My original node cache will be used to verify all entries (to discourage creative editing of entries)
  • If something screwy happens like antivroom, then the first "normal" node above 200K will be used instead. The definition of "normal" is at my discretion. (For those that weren't around at the time, read the deadpool thread above)

So, just to get this started here is my entry:

Node 200,000 will be posted on Mon Sep 23 06:57:23 2002

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
