  • I have an art degree. Who needs some art/illustration/design work for an open source perl program/perl site? This is the time for holiday giving. Gimme Gimme Gimme some thing to give. Just lead me to water.

    With all honesty. I can't hack Parrot. I can't help with Perl 6 internals. I *can* make things look neat.

          Remember, our main problem re: 'perl is dead' is not what you or I think of the designs of these sites, nor the designs of the sites we use the most. It's what the people new to the ide
