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...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
