in reply to Why did you become a Perl expert (or programmer)?

"Me? (Not that I'm an expert.)"

I was forced to by my former boss at this company around 1998 or so when they separated from this company. It was also my first IT job. I guess it was because they needed an idiot for building CGI forms which could also open a terminal and operate emacs because at that time they only knew to operate Photoshop, Quark, Freehand and Illustrator on a Mac with OS 9 with a mouse. It was a magic time: Greatest success. Unbelievable for such a small company. I also maintained this website for years which was pure Perl/CGI at that time and the first bigger customer of the company.
