in reply to I use Perl at work for

I only use Perl for fun, because my boss is afraid of all things new and different. This state of affairs is somewhat ironic, as he works at JPL, and is just about the last remaining person refusing to abandon the VMS operating system.

This is ironic because, IIRC, Perl was born at JPL on Vax machines which were (I belive) running VMS, right? At least, larry wall had an e-mail address at the JPL Vax development cluster.
