Theo is short for:
Theodore: what my Mom yelled when I was in trouble.
Theophilus: the recipient of St Luke's Gospel (meaning 'one who loves God')

When I grow up, I want to convert my half dozen shell s‎crip‎ts into perl so they won't take 2h 50m to run.

I'll have to do something else when I grow up. Limbic~Region went and did the job for me. (For which I am grateful!) It now runs in 8 seconds! That's a speed increase factor of 1,275!
