country: Germany (but was born and grew up somewhere in Tyrol/Austria)
city: Cologne
profession: Software Engineer

When I entered the Internet in 1995, I suddenly needed a nick for IRC chat and so on. Since I used to play a lot of Blues and Rock on my favourite electric guitar (a black and white Fender Stratocaster), the first nickname that popped up into my mind was Strat. I still have got the guitar, but hardly play any more, because I recently (=1998) found out that perl is by far the better "game". So the nick is alive, while the reason for it nearly is dead... (Update: I started playing the guitar again...)

I am fond of statistics somehow :-)

Sorry for my bad English, for I'm not a native speaker; but I will go on learning :-)

[Discipulus]: i invented also 'gired'
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, then that is a problem. I wanted to find total seconds of my entire .mp3 collection to do some math on it to see how many days of continuous music i have.
[LanX]: darn. .. I wanted to see Marine and Melonchon go to next round, just for fun xD
[Discipulus]: LA use Perl: traversing a dir tree is simple; foreach file mp3 $sec+= use Mp3::Info
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I was able to get the sum of the seconds on the command line using awk. Then I ran the result through a perl script and got the result. It came bach with 4 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes, 43 seconds.
[Lady_Aleena]: s/bach/back/;
[Discipulus]: gired anyway is the intermediate state between hired and fired (and vice versa;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipuluis, I don't know if I want to fight with File::Find. File::Find and I are not friends.
[Discipulus]: 4 day Bach is too muche even for me
[Discipulus]: LA you know who is paco?
