Curiously, from our early Perl Monk history, the only personal information known of cinder_bdt, the mysterious second non-insider to join the Perl Monks web site (on Dec 23 1999 22:49 UTC), relates to his socks:

When I buy socks, I throw all my old ones out and buy 21 new pairs. Here's my favorite high school math word problem: Well, this way I only ever have to touch two socks!
It's nice that he's still remembered and revered today even though he has not visited us for eleven years now (last here Jun 15, 2005 14:39 UTC). I wonder what he is doing with his socks today and if he will ever return to join us once again.

Update: Further googling suggests cinder_bdt may have moved to Alaska, in which case he will need more socks to prevent frost-bitten toes.
