I'm most proud of the code I wrote in 1986 to monitor fish in real time, so they can be used to detect water quality changes. It's still in use.

My favorite perl code was a bit of munging I wrote for someone literally halfway around the world, to interpret GPS logs to prove illegal fishing took place.

    I didn't realize that the GPS system could detect baited hooks in the water. Maybe this is an 'undocumented feature' that is only accessible via a CPAN module (in which case, I would be *really* proud of that code)? Oh, wait, you meant the 'Global Phishing System'?

    ok, I'll shut up now
