in reply to The First Ten Perl Monks

While spelunking in deepest, dankest infrastructure node jungle recently, I stumbled across a strange scrap of parchment. It bore no inscription* save two names; one was familiar to me, but the other was not:

Nathan Oostendorp and Daron Vroon
I was, as I'm sure you are, quite intrigued. So I fired off a telex to Mr. Oostendorp to inquire as to the heretofore unknown-to-us person behind this other name.

His kind and learned reply presently came to me over the wire, bearing the following invormation:

Daron was a part-time intern in the Everything Development Company and started at the same time as Tim. Yes, in Holland MI we had two interns named Vroon and Vroom and didn't bat an eye.

While Tim worked mostly on PM, Daron worked pretty much exclusively on "ecore" stuff. He left mid-way thru the school year, while Tim kept on and eventually was employed full time. Vroon probably did have accounts at one point but it's likely they got de-privileged or deleted.

* This is an exaggeration. The node, named Nodemail, lists these two characters as authors, and furthermore bears the following description: "Allows sending and recieving of email via the Everything::MAIL module."

nate went on to say that "Nodemail was the set of nodes for sendmail functionality -- although I don't think it was widely used you could create basic email templates etc. I don't recall if it was actually tied to things like password retrieval etc."

By way of post scriptum, nate reflected: "It's weird that I remember that since it's probably been 15 years since I've done active development on that system."

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    I was tempted to make some jokes about Dutch cliches ( windmills, tulips, clogs, ...) before I googled this town.

    Reality strikes again... ;-)
