in reply to Guinness Book of Perl Records

My company's contract web designer and I once developed a demonstration of an e-commerce site in Perl while I was driving from Chicago to Kansas City to present said demonstration (note, someone else was driving the car while I was writing code!). Please keep in mind that our designer was remotely deploying templates to the web server running on my laptop, which was connected to the Internet with a blazingly-fast cell-phone dial up connection :P

(for future reference, it's not the most efficient development process, but it worked!)

    This is the stuff legends are made of. If it just so happens that the name of the e-commerce site was "Ebay" or "" ... you might want to enhance your (undoubtedly already lucrative portfolio) by selling the rights to your story to New Line Cinema or something like that. Documentaries are "in" these days.
