i remember my first experience with perl.

programming for finance burned me out and i was looking for something interesting. it was 1998 and silicon alley was seducing anyone/everyone with pipe dreams of stock options. they had windows... isapi... and vb s‎crip‎t... and other tools of mass destruction... but i chanced upon some .asp s‎crip‎ts that had embedded perl. something about the -> operator jumped out at my C++ heritage. and the love afair began.

well, fads come and go. so went the dot coms. and so went i, back to finance.

but there is still love.
