"I won't aks you to grow up, but just sometime, please, aks yourself, OK, 'Who was saved?' That's all, rill easy, 'Who was saved?'... Just in the privacy of your thotz, Zoyd. As an exercise, li'l kinda Zen meditation. 'Who was saved?'... Here I thought you knew everything, it turns out you don't know ****."
— Thomas Pynchon, Vineland
Modern Perl: the book explains how Perl 5 works and how to take advantage of Perl 5.10, 5.12, and 5.14. It's from Onyx Neon press, an independent publisher of great technical books.
I've written, edited, and contributed to other technical books.
I maintain a list of Modern Perl resources.
My work includes the technical direction of Big Blue Marble. In my spare time, I contribute to Trendshare's investment guide for novices and help family members with a healthy blender recipe guide (they spend way too much time answering how to make a smoothie).
