in reply to Trained Perl professional or self-taught hack?

Another aspect to whether someone is a professional is just how much of their working time do / can they spend programming? In many small (I mean very small) companies and for freelancers, it's often not possible, you have to learn a variety of other things from web design to accounting, fix your customers' PC or explain to them how to attach a file to a mail ...

Being self taught, I could be much better in Perl by now, if I had had the time to concentrate more on it. On the other hand, that would have been less interesting in a way. So I have to learn quite slowly, but that's OK.

[Corion]: Hmmm - and now that I look at it, the gallery I'm using doesn't produce non-Javascript compatible links in the sense that hotlinking to an image will only work for Javascript enabled...
[Corion]: On the other hand, maybe supporting non-Javascript isn't that much a priority, and I'm not exactly sure how I could make it work for both kinds of browsers without server-side magic
[Corion]: Should I ever come across far too much money, this would become my evil maniac lair ;)
