Just another perl hacker

Any perl hackers here?

Re: Just another perl hacker

Indeed there are.

There was even a "Perl and Scientific Programming" panel at YAPC this year, and someone gave a lightning talk about a Perl number theory package.

Sometimes it means a guy with an elliptical shaped head and very beady eyes.

Re: Just another perl hacker

Hm, does the first meaning of boffin vary from context to context, because a nerd is not the same as a geek.

Re: Just another perl hacker

(p.s. the talk at YAPC was by me, so we have a little Perl representation)

I didn't know I was supposed to ask a question...  Will we have a proof of the Riemann Hypothesis by 2059?
