Top of the day/night monks,
In the last year or so I have become an addict to Ninja Warrior. Something about the format and the level of strength and athleticism required to complete all four stages is appealing to me. This morning Limbic~Region mentioned something on the CB that got me thinking; why don't we as monks have something similar to put our Perl skills to the test?
There are so many talented Perl Hackers here that would probably revel in the challenge and in the elite competition between PM friends. Better still, we could offer bragging rights in the form of home-node modifications, t-shirts, etc to those who win each year.
I noticed that the idea of a contest has come up before and I imagine that reluctance to implement such a contest could be due to many potential logistic problems such as:
Couldn't this be done? Wouldn't it be worth it? Would anybody else salivate at the opportunity of witnessing the clash of the Perl Titans?
