I'd like to know just what the frell I was thinking when I started using this nick. Not just here, but the first time I used it on any site. It's primarily used for gaming, but I started using it as my nym on any site (with my CPAN ID being one of the few exceptions). I have no idea why I started using it, except that "hardburn" sounded like a really cool gamer's nick back in high school. Most high school kids think sniffing a mushroom is cool, so I guess I'm not too bad for merely having silly nym.

I've thought about changing it from time to time, but it has kinda taken on a life of its own after seven years or so of using it.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.
