I learned perl at a course at the source (BTL) more years ago than I care to remember. I use perl for just about everything from dynamically building web sites to generating mainframe reports to turning on the coffee pot. I parse dreams with regular expressions. I thought it was about time to contribute to the community of the monastery after reading around many times.

  • <s>have taken up space at the local phone company for 26 years as the resident geek</s> job sent offshore, I decided to stay in America
  • <s>re-entered</s> full-time in the academic world after a three decade anti-sabbatical
  • a day without writing at least a thousand lines of code is an empty day (last happened about a three decades ago)
  • write a great deal of perl on my laptop which includes the usual tools - Apache, perl, python...
  • working on an improved METAR (encoded aviation weather reports) decoder module
