Hello, my name is Alex, and I love statistics ...
Of course, you've seen the quote from Ozymandias on the Perl Monks stats pages:
It's like crack for statisticians

    Of course I've seen the quote. Didn't realize that brother Ozymandias wrote that -- a very cool name, and I thought of the Shelley poem as soon as I saw the name. Fourteen lines of bitter irony .. 'Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair!' .. quite brilliant.

    And it was Shelley's wife who wrote Dr. Frankenstein .. I wonder if there was any thematic crossover there at all.
