My name is Beatnik, and I'm addicted to signed Perl ORA books...

/me changes password...

Currently working on:
  • SPINE - I picked up an old project and started porting it to mod_perl. It's great fun so far!
  • A parrot version of a Beatnik interpreter... I promised acme that I would write one

The cover above is obviously based on the Llama2. I got the Llama2 cover from the ORA FTP site, also downloaded the Cookbook cover (for the double o in Pool) and, some other covers for the lettering. The picture is obviously Neve Campbell (a goddess IMHO). Editing was done in the GIMP. Full sized cover is here. The T-shirt version I wore at YAPC::Eu 2.00.1 is here.

crazyinsomniac kinda forced me into this one...
This cover was based on the Perlnut cover. After several attempts of composing the word WOMEN with existing letters on ORA covers, I used a Garamond TTF to create it. I got the Perlnut cover from the ORA FTP site. The picture is obviously Alyssa Milano (Requested by crazyinsomniac). Editing was done in the GIMP. Full sized cover is here + - Just a quick edit, since the gates + monestary was SOOOOOOOoooooooo tempting

I'm doing Comp Sci in Leuven, Part of Vlaanderen.PM and Swiss.PM, Op on Undernet's #cgi, not too crowded, friendly bunch.
Besides Perl, I program in half a dozen other languages (even the ones I don't like, *cough* COBOL *cough*)
I spent most of my time sleeping (about 8 hours a day). The remaining 16 hours is spent on school, food, perl, computer stuff in general.

For those who doubt :NO, I'm NOT vroom nor his evil twin, just because we were born on the exact same day. Coincidentially, YAPC::Eu was held on the 18, 19 and 20th of september 2002 (which was when I turned 24). I didn't throw a small party tho, altho I did have a few beers.

don't blame me for this idea, it's ar0n's fault!

Quite obviously, all code posted on perlmonks by me is owned by me. It can be redistributed under the same terms as Perl itself, unless otherwise noted. Me being (in both cases), Hendrik Van Belleghem, hendrik at ldl48 period org.
