( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I caught myself staring at the screen, looking at my own homenode id.

"Wow, 1350.. I'm getting old in here", suddenly I found that I was thinking of node numbers in the same way that you might look at distant cousin that you haven't seen since you were a kid. Appreciation of how one came to be, growing up. Nostalgic. I doubt that Perl Monks has hit its full-mature-self yet, but it sure has come a long way...

Do you remember the days:
  • When a good post was awarded 10 votes?
  • When there was no #perlmonks (or trout)?
  • When btrott and chromatic were scribes?
  • When node ids had 4 digits?
  • When there were no user monk pics in rotation?
  • When the chatterbox was usually empty?
  • When vroom actually had time enough to post answers?
  • When neshura posted her 1st pic?
  • When polls got less than 100 votes total?
  • When there was no voting/expirience system?
  • When you could remember all of the monks by their handles?
  • When perlmonks was a habit and not an addiction?
(the above are not sorted in any particular chronological order, well, sorta)

# Trust no1!

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
