Work with the Perl Foundation (TPF) has been challenging. Tip: do not volunteer for all-volunteer organizations unless you really, really are passionate about it. Much frustration, little accomplishment.
I finally got my "Google Summer of Code" T-Shirt. Google went the distance and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt. Heck, even the $500.00 I earned for being a mentor went back to TPF. I could have used it, but it looks a bit odd if I accept the money and run the grant committee.
