Just another Perl shrine

Actually, of the "on-line communities" I visit regulary, perlmonks is my least favourite. These are the communities I visit regulary, in backwards order of when I joined:
  • Perlmonks. Since 2Q 2002 as 'Abigail-II', before that as Abigail, with about a year of not being here.
  • alt.sysadmin.recovery. I joined this Usenet group in 1997 or 1998. I recently ended my year long vacation from Usenet.
  • IRC, #perl. Since early 1997. Certainly the busiest community I visit. Of all the people I know both in RL and from an on-line community, I know most of them from IRC.
  • p5p, the perl5-porters mailing list. Since about the same time as IRC. I'm a member of about a dozen mailinglists (the exact number varies over time), but this is the only one that gives me some sense of a community.
  • comp.lang.perl.misc, previously comp.lang.perl. Since Januari 1995, the same day I started to use Perl. This community has given me the best exposure over the years.
  • VikingMUD, since 1993, and before that, IgorMUD, since 1991. My most precious community. By far the least amount of traffic, but I've spend 1354 days there. That 1354 * 24 hours being online there. It has given me jobs and some very deep (and long) friendships.
  • nl.eeuwig.september, split-off from nl.misc, which was called nlnet.misc before, and nlnet.general even before that. Been part of that community since 1988 - some members go back even further.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
