Greetings!!

revidablo's comment:

      Despite this low coding rate, I read about Perl almost every day. I constantly look at code, and think about code.
...describes my current relationship with perl. I read perl books frenquently, and have found the Perl CD Bookshelf to be a great research and reference tool. But most of my time is actually spent reading and trying to understand the code of others. The Monastery has been a wonderful place to keep up with the wonders of perl and be a part of an active perl community.

On rare occasions, I have a need/opportunity to write code (or scripts) for my company. It is not my primary duty. When these opportunities arise, I immediately look to perl for a solution. I haven't had to look elsewhere yet!

After recently purchasing TheDamian's book: Object Oriented Perl, I began thinking more in terms of Object Oriented Perl. I find this new (to me) and challenging area to be fun and facinating. I am still not coding very much, however. Mostly thinking and reading...
