Long time Perl user, not so long time PerlMonks user, sort-of fresh commenter.
More detailed, Iím an í82 edition whose first involvement in abusing Perl was during a high school afternoon class in í99 or so, and the language remained interesting and a favourite ever since. My first professional use dates back to 2001, and after a few yearsí gap in the middle of the 2000s, Iím back doing Perl, PostgreSQL and Gtk2 at a small company once responsible for the first Hungarian Linux distribution, UHU-Linux.
I like seeing the world and photography, but I rarely have the chance to do it. I have yet to go to a YAPC, as costs tend to be disturbingly high for my Central European budget.
I like languages, but am not as enthusiastic about them and proficient in them as Iíd like. I speak Hungarian, English, German and Dutch, the latter two nowhere as fluently as the first two. I have dabbled with, in order of appearance, Japanese, Finnish, Swedish, Thai and Chinese, but neither have had much success yet.
