There's more than one way to do things

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've had my own graphic design firm for over 27 years. So I was around when the Web was born, and I soon started "cranking out" graphics-bloated static brochureware using CyberStudio (GoLive).

Fortunately I saw the writing on the wall and realized the web was going dynamic and could soon become a strategic communication's tool for my customers (no bright light--this revelation evolved).

I loved the Web too much to turn it over to tech firms so I grabbed a used copy of Que's Perl book and started writing dynamic (albeit crappy) code and had something more to offer my customers and keep them in the fold.

A funny thing happened along the way...I discovered I really liked programming. Making a computer do something was cool. I love the mindstretching (at 53 yrs this is good) challenges of learning new stuff, refining the old, and getting it all to work. Perl has allowed me to combine my passion for design (the analog) with my passion for the web (the digital).

And it all eventually lead me to this bizarre community of religiously Perlish devotees...
