What got you interested in Perl?
It was in the time when me and Chainsaw were working in the college, we used to work there as sysadmin of about 30 old sparc station 5, one day we wanted to learn something new, so we did decide to learn Perl, so we did read a few tutorials and learned something, not much.
That were the days when i used perl with no strict and perlmonks was a casual page to visit, then one day a friend of mine who owns a restaurant asked me for help, he did need a POS so i make one with perl, for that project i learned (in the hard way) DBI, CGI, _allways_ use strict and warnings.
That was about 2 years ago, now today i use perl for everything i need, and i get paid to use perl COOL :)
About 3 months and 22 days ago i was in my friend restaurant, cuz he wanted some features to be added to the POS and i meet a girl, now that girl (vanne) is my g/f, so it was thanx to perl that i meet her :)
Vanne and me broke up :'(
