  • Roof
    - Preferably one without any major leaks.
  • Door
    - Preferably one that locks from both sides, but at very least from within.
  • Clean, Drinkable Water
    - Filling water bottles from a machine is acceptable, so long as the dispenser is within walking distance. Having to boil well water or rain water is not.
  • Indoor Toilet
    - Affixed to an adequate septic system, automatic flush not required.
  • Electricity
    - Occasional outages (but no more than a few minutes at a time) are acceptable.
  • Internet
    - Fast enough for a google search to return a result within 5 seconds. 3G is more than sufficient, dial-up over a wireless network would depend largely on the service provider, and signal strength.


  • Bed
    - If no bed is provided, the sleeping surface must be easily cleanable, for example tile or linoleum. On a bare concrete or dirt floor, I would require an elevated sleeping surface, or at very least a bamboo sleeping mat. In open-air environments, such as rooms with a noticeable gap between wall and roof, mosquito netting would also be nice to have.
  • Shower Head
    - A vat of rain water with a bowl for dousing would be the minimum level of acceptability.

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;
