Perl 5.12.2 is now available
Message ID:
	CPUs. Cayce Pollard Units. That's what Damien calls the clothing
	she wears. CPUs are either black, white, or gray, and ideally
	seem to have come into this world without human intervention.

	What people take for relentless minimalism is a side effect
	of too much exposure to the reactor-cores of fashion. This
	has resulted in a remorseless paring-down of what she can and
	will wear. She is, literally, allergic to fashion. She can
	only tolerate things that could have been worn, to a general
	lack of comment, during any year between 1945 and 2000. She's a
	design-free zone, a one-woman school of and whose very austerity
	periodically threatens to spawn its own cult.
