in reply to What do you do for living?

I do as much of $day_job as I can in Perl (the majority of the systems at current $day_job are written in MS Access 97 or VB). All of my @contract_jobs are Perl (some wxPerl, some CGI::Application, some plain CGI).

I obtained a Diploma of CIS (Computer Information Systems) from a two year course at a local college. Before that was two years of general arts at the same college and before that was a year of Engineering at UBC.

I am a generalist, not a specialist, and Perl comes in handy for almost anything I might need to do. Which is, of course, part of what I love about Perl.

[Veltro]: ok, but nm. I meant the solution as a whole actually. Not sincerely the apps that use it
[marto]: and not long ago it wasn't feasible for anyone really to create a finger print of all known music to compare samples against...
[marto]: if you're living in the cloud, you're going to get rained on :P
[Veltro]: feasible in the sense of 'making money'?
[marto]: if your app just calls a remote or third party service to do the task, you app does not 'do the task', it's just a messenger
[marto]: in the sense that for various values of "a while ago" it would not have been possible (and arguable still isn't) to have a fingerprint of every piece of commercially released music to compare against.
[marto]: a co-worker refers to the late 1980s as "a while ago"
[Veltro]: Like I said before, I ment the solution as a whole
