A perfect example of why I like this site and the whole internet. You have to love the way strange little nooks like this just pop up and then *don't* go away. I stop by on a quiet (for me) Friday night, and I check in on What's New at PerlMonks. The top entry refers to this paco guy, so I click on his name. As I said, a quiet evening.

So of course it sticks out right away that (1) this guy has one write up, (2) he hasn't been around since 1999 and (3) he's got 717 XP and is a Pilgrim. That makes me curious enough to end up here.

After re-checking his home node, I also notice that (4) Paco joined the site at 21:12 (my time) and was last seen at 21:16 on the same day. Four minutes for him, going on 9 years for his after-life on the site. Not bad, not bad at all.

Of course, questions remain. Where is paco? Why did he leave so soon. Why does Mork29 say above that he came back in 2002? Or, the other way around, why does paco's home node not jibe with this? Who put the picture up on paco's home node?

Lots of questions, but no answers. In any case, good night paco - wherever you are.
