in reply to The First Ten Perl Monks

jdporter kindly messaged me with still more vital historical information missing from my original post.

Though correctly identifying Ryan "dembones" Postma as one of the early Everything developers, I somehow totally missed that he was also the ninth Perl Monk!

No 8a: dem bones

Other Hope/Calvin College students from the early days who registered at Perl Monks include krikke (Josh Krikke) and Robo (Rob Oostendorp).

Gratifyingly, jdporter confirmed the correctness of my guesses about:

  • Jonathan Pater
  • Darrick Brown
  • Patrick Schoonveld
  • Bryan D Thomas
Heartbreakingly however, sgtbaker is apparently not a real person, but just one of vroom's many test accounts.

The revered paco, of course, is no test account. He's a real person all right, and, tantalizingly, jdporter revealed that he had some sort of mysterious, perhaps supernatural, association with the early BSI developers. The paco mystery deepens!
