in reply to I am a M/F/Other...
What I was going to say here before my post got lost was that a perl nun is not a good thing. Nuns are traditionally only minimally educated (enough to read the liturgy) while monks are very scholarly, so a perl nun would be a person who was enthusiastic about Perl without knowing anything about - a sysadmin maybe? (heh heh)
So a skilled perl coder who happens to be a woman ought to be a monk too.
Am I being too picky? I consider myself a monk, even though I voted for "nun"
