As you may know, Perl is now 20 years old. In lieu of buying her a beer and waiting around for a year, I'm looking for interesting stories and memories to collect and post on a Perl-related website with a very nice and short domain name in the next couple of days.

Please send them to, along with a one sentence biography.

  • I tried to send something to and got a bounce: "reason: 550-Host is blocked: 550 Mail refused from spam source" ??? My domain has never been a spam source. Why is it blocked? I have a paragraph to contribute, if it is possible. does read this board? I also wonder how I can get a copy of Perl 1.0 from 1987. I like collecting historical software. The oldest Perl I've found is a 3.something port to MS-DOS.
