in reply to Volunteering as a way to learn more Perl

Going with chromatic's suggestion sounds like the best idea so far. (At least for Portland area people.) If I had free time, I'd be doing that.

Instead I've been working on the House of Dreams website. Currently generated by Perl, moving to a less static version once I go through a decent design phase.

The other way to get a an internship is by networking. I worked at one company that wound up signing up an "intern" and assigning him to me. He was just learning programming, though he had a PHD in Math IIRC. He got in mainly because he was a friend of another developer.

[Corion]: marto: Yeah - their mother picked all three of them up at the kindergarden to then go to the hospital, and all three of them were well behaved, and all also were quite obedient when they came home, so they recognized the situation
[Corion]: Nice to see that the kids have some understanding of important things that happen and the appropriate behaviour :)
[marto]: at times mine surprise me with this behavior :)
[Corion]: I mean, in a way it would be nicer+easier if they always where that obedient, but it's comforting to see that they are when it matters, at least for now ;)
