My 2 year old son. Super Perl Monk in the making.
Dru is my nickname. The 145 were the first 3 numbers that popped into my head when picking a yahoo username.
New Year's Rsolution
Read all of perlman:perl, read and comprehend all of The Camel.
I work full time as a Senior Network Security Analyst playing with firewalls, intrusion detection systems and what not. I learned Perl to automate all of the daily mundane jobs I was having to perform manually. Most of my scripts deal with firewall logging and checking system resources. I've been programming with Perl hardcore for 6 months now and I've developed a strange fetish for it. I feel I've only learned about 20% of what Perl has to offer. I am also a part time student trying to obtain a bachelor's degree in Computer and Information Science. I have a 2 year old son who makes me go to the Teletubbies and Mr. Roger's web page every 5 minutes. I just got an idea for another Perl script, got to go....
