Err ...Started programming when I was 12 (1980) in BASIC and Z-80 assembly.
Started programming perl ... oh, I forget, a while ago.
I have since written some extremely sloppy code for many different uses.
Like a online quote generator (lo-end relational database) and some search engines.
I'm easily bored, so I have a lot of hobbies: perl, bass guitar, sound recording, graphic design, graffiti (yes, that's me; no, I don't do it, I take pictures of it), and other ways of wasting time.
HyperZonk for more personal stuff, if you're really that bored ...
