Hello, World!

$juerd = Monk->new(
    name      => 'Juerd Waalboer',
    nicknames => [ qw/Juerd Juerdje Whreq/ ],
    age       => 28,  # Please remind me to update this if you're reading this after 2012-06-10 :)
    education => undef,
    homepage  => URI->new(''),
    email     => Mail::Address->new('Juerd', 'juerd' . '@' . ''),
    languages => [ qw/Dutch English Esperanto/ ],


People keep asking me how to pronounce "Juerd". Maybe putting the answer on my home node helps :)
J - like Y in You;
UE - a stretched uu-sound. The uu-sound is not found in english. It is like the german "ü" (as in "über") (note: that's NOT like "ou" in "you"). The "e", if pronounced, sounds like "uh" (like "e" in "the");
R - the R is very short, or not pronounced at all;
D - Like any d or t :).

Geek alert!

Note: Reversing geek codes to sentences is BAD. Look up the letters and count the number of plusses. Don't rely on a parser.
