my current life

I've founded a small company called Intellique with a pair of friends. We try to keep having as much fun as possible, working on interesting, challenging, possibly enriching things like Linux, Unix, Perl and Free Software in general.

I have a great wife and two children, and when I've got some time to spare I play or compose mostly jazzy music.

my past life

My first contact with computer programming was BASIC, back at the time when "using a computer" was roughly equivalent to "programming", around 1981.

I practiced programming exclusively as a hobby for 17 years. I learnt and wrote BASIC, TurboPASCAL, Z80 assembly, 8086 assembly...

In the meanwhile I worked as a pianist, then as a sound engineer, then as a video techie, and that's when I discovered Unix and perl.

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
[Corion]: Ah, how I missed it. After some years, I revisit slashdot on a click-bait link, and it provides the usual humor instantly: "I didn't know Drupal had rules for sex. It must be a plug-in"
[Corion]: erix: This is not for sybase, but for the input data files, resp. their contents.
