A (mostly) meaningless statistic

I have now reached level 4 on PerlMonks.

You get experience points for doing various things. You have a chance of getting experience points every time you log on and every time you vote (either up or down) someone else's post. You also get experience points for making posts that other people vote up, which is where I think most of mine came from.

When I reached level 4 this morning, it told me I had "super-powers" now. It's actually a pretty small super power, but it's a super power nonetheless. Whee.


I'd forgotten all about it. It was a very nice surprise to see the puzzle show up on my friends page just now. And it was even nicer that it was something I could use Perl to solve in a few minutes.
