Started with Perl 4 way back in 1994. Used Perl to develop services for a web-hosting and development company. Was co-organiser of YAPC::Europe 2001 in Amsterdam. Started participating in Perl 5 Porters since basically June 2002, mostly about threads. Have about 40 modules on CPAN.

Mostly interested in search engine functionality and using Perl as a glue language to interface various XML components. And still more learning about Perl, which may or may not have anything to do with experience.

[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
[hippo]: The thesholds/benefits balance at the time was nuts.
[hippo]: But that doesn't last because, you know ... politicians. :(
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, if you still get enough money to get by and don't have expensive hobbies or other fixed costs that can work out well
[ambrus]: ah good. I pay only rent too. but that still costs significant money.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, but that is already budgeted for
