Falkkin is really Colin McMillen.

Boring info:
I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where I'm a computer science Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University. I was introduced to Perl as an impressionable youth -- from a simply horrible book on CGI programming -- and have been reforming ever since. It's been a while since I've been a regular here; I haven't really been using Perl as much as I once did.

My poems (newest first):
my $gorgeous
my $bonnie
my @three_virtues;

An assortment of other nifty perl poems:
Perl Haiku, by Nimster
Suessified Perl Poem, by KM
Tonight's Dilemma, by rlk
Variation on a Shifting themes, by alakaboo

And, finally, a song, by Petruchio:
I just want to siiiing!

Chatterbox Quote(s) of Note:

  • <arturo> security through incompetence... there's a neat idea.
  • <Petruchio> I'm sorry, the word "off" already appears in the source code for my home node, which means I've already licensed it. It's protected under my EULA.
  • <tilly> The American Kestral is the smallest raptor in North America.
    <Falkkin> actually, i might be smaller, due to compression after hitting that tree at ~200 mph
    <Petruchio> gunzip Falkkin
    <Falkkin> Falkkin: not in gzip format
    <Falkkin> Unfortunately, I'm afraid that hitting a tree at ~200 MPH is not a lossless form of compression.
    <Petruchio> cat < Falkkin
    <tye> Useless use of < at Petruchio, line 1
  • <jeffa> mmmm... grape nuts
    <notsoevil> Grape Nuts taste like dirt ..
    <jeffa> not just dirt, dirt that tastes like grape nuts
