Actually the slashdot crew also were involved in creating perlmonks, CmdrTaco for instance was the fifth user created on the site, the second admin account and third real person with an account. paco was an somebody who managed to get an account while they were setting things up. Judging by the history of slashdot it appears to predate PM but i wouldnt be surprised if its the other way around.

    FYI vroom told me that paco was never a real person. That was a test account he created while developing the site, and he was somewhat surprised when I noticed the existence of the account many years ago.

    Update: On second thought, planetscape is right. So I'm spoilering my original post.

      How sad. Isn't this like telling children there's no Santa Claus?



      I want my ++ on his node back!

      I also need to know who the real first non-affiliated person was that joined!

      And you didn't even know bears could type.
