Characteristics:

  • Giant female (6'6")
  • Vegetarian
  • Dutch, not in Amsterdam
  • Stubborn, cats, teasing, reading, movies, SF
  • Headbanging speedmetalhead: Kiss, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Annihilator, Testament, Within Temptation
  • Concerta/Ritalin-taking ADHD, sometimes nervous, often just being silly hyperactive
  • Politician, former council member, member of Dutch liberal party (yeah, a politician)
  • Radical atheist
  • Beginning writer, mostly SF
  • Love whisky and whiskey, especially Laphroaigh, Glenrothes, Gouden Carolus (Belgian!) and Lagavullin
  • Sometimes I bark at the moon, play tag or tap someone "on the other shoulder", while trying to look like an innocent lovable 50+ year old

Programming:

  • 1983: Pascal (never used it outside the classroom)
  • 1986: dBase III+ and Basic (horrible, never used them outside the classroom)
  • 1987: TenCORE (amazingly good CBT development system and programming language, helped me provide for my income for over 7 years), Lisp (yegh blergh), C (did 2 $projects)
  • 1994: Perl, mostly minor work until 1997
  • 1994 etc: bits and pieces of PHP, Javas‎crip‎t, C++, not enough to be able to work with it, enough to stick with Perl

Learned the basics of Perl in 1994. For years I mostly did simple basic things with Perl like s‎crip‎ts for forms and server logs. In 1999 tried to learn more. In 2003 I tried again and even made a japh. I'll be quiet mostly, read and vote, and learn a lot. So that's what I wrote my first Meditation about: Where and how to start learning Perl. I made a Dutch translation, slightly adapted.
