( #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)

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
