    Hey! Why aren't coffee mugs on that list?

    Oh yeah...

    $_='01222021240215162109061924000619132423161512202411221512100625'; die+('P','J','a'..q.u.,'M',q, ,,qq)\n))[/(..)/g] if not $,,#$online;
      I second that. Other items I always need:
      • pen & paper for planning my code
      • caffeinated chocolate to boost coffee-performance
      • bookmarks (hardware bookmarks, that is)
      • a bag for all those perl books I'm carrying around

    Red shirt, red shirt, who do I look like, an expendable from Star Trek?

    Anyway, Blue shirts are cooler. 8)

    Shee, and I was expecting to see the loincloths for the gurus, and the robes, with maybe a relic or two thrown in for the saints.

    Call me a geek, but I want a Perlmonks Visa card.

    Perhaps either a kickback goes into the monastery (prolly impractical), or you get some sort of discount on books, PM merchandise, whatever. Actually, I don't even care if it's just a regular old Visa card, I want a PM logo on it.

    Imagine the satisfaction as you slap that card down at your favorite non-virtual bookstore, amazing the sales clerk (a mere mortal) that YOU are a Perl master, and have a Perlmonks Visa to prove it.

    Imagine paying the bill at your favorite food establishment, confident that the waiter, management, and other surrounding customers will be in complete awe, because YOU have a Perlmonks Visa card.

    Imagine the knowing look from the salesperson at Holland Guns and Ammo as you pay for your stainless Colt .45 1911a (with custom engraved Perlmonks Logo), that he knows that you know vroom (who personally accounted for 17% of the stores income last year), and have a Perlmonks Visa to prove it.

    Imagine knowing that you'll get a volume buyers discount at North Side Liquor Center (501 Butternut, Holland, MI, 616-392-9120), not to mention the free samples, because YOU have a Perlmonks Visa (and where vroom accounted for 23% of total sales for fiscal year 2000)

    Women will swoon (if you're male), men will trail you like a lost puppy (if you're female), servicemen will salute you, police will escort you, and politicians will bow to you, because YOU have a Perlmonks Visa...

      You are a geek! But I also want a Perlmonks Visa card.

      The idea of identifying with the tech community in general on something as common as my credit card would indeed have the awesomeness factor that you speak of. And a perl card would be aleph-0 times greater than a Microsoft card.

    My favourite idea for a PM mercahndise item is still Erudil's contribution to Apparel Design Entries (no #10).
    Is there any chance of them being made? I would definitely be up for buying one ;-)
      We did a test run of a combination of #5 and #10 and they didn't come out looking that good. If we move most of the T-shirts we have now I'd like to see a t-shirt or possibly hooded sweatshirt with a combination of something like #10 and a design I got from pixelboy.

    Mystery Item?

    Since I'm just a poor college kid, someone's gonna have to fill me in, since I'm not getting anything until Christmas.

    I think that some shorts or pants are in order (or at least my order). I have a bunch of cool computer/coding related shirts, but nothing for the lower half of my body. We would have to be extraordinarily careful about not making these shorts/pants look dumb though. Thanks for the shirts everyone who helped!

    Absobolutely! I'd be willing to dish out Xtra cash for personalized items with a perlmonks common theme!
    AgentM Systems nor Nasca Enterprises nor Bone::Easy nor Macperl is responsible for the comments made by AgentM. Remember, you can build any logical system with NOR.
      I'll second that motion!!
