  • Wonderful post.

  • Very nice post!

    Do you know perchance where the names came from:
    * Parrot
    * Rakudo
    * Ponie
    * Pugs

  • A wonderful article.  At first, I thought that you were unaware of the Topaz incarnation of "Perl 6", but I agree that it is not really something to consider as part of Perl 6 as it became and should not affect the anniversary date.

    The mugs jokes had me expecting something that would refer to a broken mug being unable to hold java but could still hold something even more important.

    The pugs description brings back great memories of the 2005 YAPC::NA hackathon.  I think it was the second or third ha
  • Thanks !

    I am really grateful for the link to Audreys note about the fate of Pugs.

    It is good to remember that severe damage can come from words.

    • Ah. But words can heal, too...

      Translating this series to Chinese has been deeply therapeutic for myself, and I'd like to thank masak++ again for bringing me back to #perl6. :-)

      • God bless you Audrey.

        Pugs made this non contributor (except in a limited financial sense) v happy. Living for me in 05 was reading the Pugs blog and watching things happen.


        • Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot to me.

          #perl6 is even more active today than it was before; things are happening there very smoothly and pleasantly... The lambda-butterflies are so adorable nowadays.

          Ah, this must be how a proud grandparent feel like. :-)

      • I'd like to thank masak++ again for bringing me back to #perl6. :-)

        Oh, I did, didn't I? :-)
