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
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!
- Q: If you have blue socks, red socks and white socks, what is the smallest number greater than 0 of socks that you have to pull out of your drawer to get a pair?
- A: n+1 where n is 3 because you have 3 different colors.
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.
