Hi there!

I have not done a Perl Weekly edition for a long time. Nice to see you again!

It is said that in every bad thing there is also something good. Karen Pauley has left The Perl Foundation, but at least now she could be awarded with a White Camel.

Congratulations to her and to David Golden and Thomas Klausner, the other two recipients.

Enjoy the presents!
