6'6" tall, 300 pound nerd. Consumes massive amounts of Pepsi, Coke, and other high caffeine beverages.

Answers to "Pawly".
This rare find can program in many languages, including HTML, Perl and Objective C. Give him caffeine, sugar, and a Macintosh and he will sit quietly and make you a beautiful program with his bare hands.

Let him loose in your server room and he will have your network running at peak efficiency in a matter of hours!

If you are interested in this wonderful product, please bid!

New details on product available!

Exact Dimensions: 6'6"x9" Weight: ~300 lbs. 100% Nerd Boi

Answers to the name "Pawly"
Pawly would be the perfect edition to your collection of oddities for not only is he a "Young Larry Wall" when it comes to the sacred language of PERL, but he programs efficiently in a veritable myriad of other languages in cluding HTML, Objective C, Visual Basic, and Java adaptable to the text editor of your choice!
Rest assured, that if this tasty Nerdboi is purchased by a lady - he is indeed *object orientated* if you know what we mean.
Even at Pawly's young age, he is near house broken and the only accidents that happen are when he spills one of his multitude of caffenated beverages on the keyboard . He requires simple meals and for the most part, and in keeping with the Geek Tradition, little sunlight.
Pawl, like a fungus, performs best in the dark.

If you have the need for a programmer,security expert, networking pro or for the ladies, a young lover with a little bit of weight behind him for positive thrust and soft, tender hands from never doing an iota of physical labour, Pawly is the hack for you.

Since Pawly is indeed an HNG, the Agents responsible for his sale, UFieCo. recommend in strong terms against him going into a home/office/environment where there are women under the age of 25.
It is believed, however not substantiated, that Pawly does also fear large Geeks with a penchant for SCO and NetBSD.

We at UFieCo. guarantee that Pawly, not Just Another Perl Hack and Linux Demi-God, will be perfect addition to your team, home, or bedroom. So make a Bid on him today! - Just remember, far more useful than a Chia Pet - It is a PerlPawly!

Pawly - Garden Variety Goddess Approved

Binding contract.
     Placing a bid is a binding contract in many states. Do not bid unless you intend to buy this item at the amount of your bid.

Proxy bidding for all bids
     Please bid the maximum amount you are willing to pay for this item. Your maximum amount will be kept secret; eBay will bid on your behalf as necessary by increasing your bid by the current bid increment up until your maximum is reached. This saves you the trouble of having to keep track of the auction as it proceeds and prevents you from being outbid at the last minute unless your spending limit is exceeded. (See an example of proxy bidding). Also, in case of a tie for high bidder, earlier bids take precedence. And, keep in mind that you cannot reduce your maximum bid at a later date. Unless otherwise noted, bids are in U.S. dollars.
     If you have bid on this item before, note that your new bid must be greater than your previous bid.
