Started learning Perl in 1997.
Using Perl on a daily basis for both business and pleasure. Have written several web based e-commerce systems for SMB clients. Running self-made SMTP, webmail and FTP server. And much more.
Currently employed by a small IT company in the Norwegian public sector, responsible for the care and feeding of storage, backup and network for some 7000 users at just under 200 sites. Perl to the rescue! :-)
