Me

I work full time as a Senior Network Security Analyst playing with firewalls, intrusion detection systems and what not. I learned Perl to automate all of the daily mundane jobs I was having to perform manually. Most of my s‎crip‎ts deal with firewall logging and checking system resources. I've been programming with Perl hardcore for 6 months now and I've developed a strange fetish for it. I feel I've only learned about 20% of what Perl has to offer. I am also a part time student trying to obtain a bachelor's degree in Computer and Information Science. I have a 2 year old son who makes me go to the Teletubbies and Mr. Roger's web page every 5 minutes. I just got an idea for another Perl s‎crip‎t, got to go....
