in reply to I mainly write Perl at...

Perl is a huge part of what I consider "work", but it also pleases me as a quick and dirty scripting language for doing things at home. I couldn't live without my dictionary-website-grabber script, or the script that tells me when the next train leaves. Without Perl, I'd have a hard time converting all sorts of text formats into eachother, both at home and at the office.

Home and work are hard to keep separated if you're a business owner. I often work at home, and do private coding at the office, so I couldn't decide between work and home. I chose "a keyboard" :)

As my job: yes; When I can: yes; In secret: sometimes; For fun: yes; Seriously: rarely; 4am: er, yea; A keyboard: most always.

- Yes, I reinvent wheels.
