While I've been using Perl off an on since 1997, I got serious in Sept 2003. I started working with tutorials I found online, joined PerlMonks, and started finding excuses for using Perl in my admin tasks on Win32 servers. Got alot of weird looks from my coworkers when I told them I was using Perl, but I didn't care. Because of Perl I was learning to enjoy coding again. In October 2003, got the Llama book, Learning Perl 2nd Edition, and Advanced Perl (panther). In the last couple of months however, I've gotten my admin stuff under control and therefore haven't done much Perl. Other interests are pulling me in different directions, but Perl has a very honored place in my toolbelt, my mindset, and my heart.
