 It's completely impossible to move on from the one girl born on the same
 day of the same year at the same time as you, on the vernal equinox, on
 the transition of the age of picses to the age of aquarius, who's hot as
 hell, exactly completely perfect for you in all her shortcomings, who
 you met through total bizare wierd fate who you technically grew up with
 who steals you away from the only positive relationship you had to
 create a child with you, ruin all your friendships, who gets you fired
 from two jobs, who has you falsely arrested, who raises a beautiful baby
 boy with you who we both created out of love and then one day just takes
 him away and says shes moving to new mexico only to stay in the bay area
 and who tells you that she's getting MARRIED to the new guy who you son
 thinks is REALLY YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE on your *OWN BIRTHDAY* and
 then goes ahead and starts hiding his very name, his very whereabouts, his entire
 existance just as if you had never been born, just as if you had never exist, just as
 if you had never deserved to have ever graced her with your presence - enough
 so that she just pulls the most cruelest meanest thing anyone could have ever done to a
 person in the history of love, romance, courtship, anything. you name it.
 Times are a changin. This is ULTIMATE SUFFERING and for *what*? Just
 sticks and stones? Is my entire existance worth what you're waking up to
 every day? Is what I go to sleep at night feeling worth what you wake up knowing?
 How could I deserve this?
 How could anyone?

i would do almost anything for a lifetime subs‎crip‎tion to the perl journal,
also, i would be more then happy to write technical columns or give speeches
or presentations. looking to be further published, especially as the above
list doubles in size. would strongly be interested in old copies of the TPJ.

my brother just joined the air force, he ships off on the 13th of september.
i am gonna wish my best for you eric, stay safe bro



I just want to invent, I will support what I invent, and I'll
integrate and fix what you've got with it.

I program perl. I am a good sysadmin and engineer, I'm a realist, I
like research projects and lab work, I use enlightenment!

I can write automation s‎crip‎ts and engines, I can write process
interaction and validation and verification tools, I can parse any
configuration file with builtin embedded functional shorthands, i
know layering really good. Heck I'm sharp and smart! Look at all
the cheap hacks that I've written, most of these crazy ideas happened
in less than five minutes.

I want to succeed. I know how to listen. I act on good advice, I
need a chance. I bring change.

I will work for bandwidth;
beer; and urban ninja unix development;

Sincerely,

Steven Loren Fountain
