Grandson and his new sister, August 2008

The node I enjoyed posting most is Ook interpreter
My most spectacularly successful "code in reply" is Fast common substring matching
A lot of people seem to like Utility to capture parameters and perform a task
Some sage advice :-) for SoPW posters who would like answers: I know what I mean. Why don't you?
and a meditation: Flipin good, or a total flop?
and: Ta Da - a PerlMonks markup savy editor

I used to be an electronics technician for the University of Otago (Dunedin, NZ). I'm now part of a software development team writing data capture and analysis software for the product that our company sells. Mostly writing C++, but writing a lot of Perl tools that are used in a wide range of roles in the company. I've used SC/MP, RCA COSMAC (CDP1802), Z80, 8051, 6800 and 6502 assembler, Forth, Basic (many flavours), Logo, SmallTalk, Pascal, Algol 60, Fortran, C, C++, VBA, JS‎crip‎t and Perl. I started using Perl in May 2005 to convert a Word document to TWiki (with pretty successful results) and joined PerlMonks at the end of May.

Oh, and if you haven't already, do read The strictures, according to Seuss!

[Discipulus]: if i can suggest La Reine Margot too is a great book and obviously The Count of Monte Cristo that is a chef-d'œuvre
[Discipulus]: The red sphinx is about Rechilieu, absolutely thrilling
