Amazing how horrible a picture is when taken early on a Sunday morning.... (~04:30 AM)

A little about me (so far):

I'm a software designer working in IS at Nortel Networks. I have chosen Perl as the programming language after inheriting a database reporting system which was written in Perl 4. This was about 4 years ago and I haven't looked back since.

I just started getting into WIN32 Perl programming and have found the existing modules in ActivePerl quite useful. I guess I'll soon have to try some GUI programming since this is what users want.

<SHAMELESS PLUG>
My first attempt playing with WIN32 on NT is Simple WIN32 Service Test

<ANOTHER SHAMELESS PLUG>
Some personal/professional views in My philosophy on coding (in Perl and other languages)
</ANOTHER SHAMELESS PLUG>

<YET ANOTHER SHAMELESS PLUG (or YASP)>
I am currently working on a book about learning how to program and Perl is the implementation language. Feel free to add your comments or suggestions or even off-the-Wall (heheh) ideas at Perl for Non-Programmers... . Any and all ideas will be gratefully accepted.

<STILL YET ANOTHER SHAMELESS PLUG (or S-YASP)>
More of my personal opinions at The Illusion of One-Offs . Let me know what you think.
