OK, ellem what's the worst bit of your job?

Is there anything you can do to automate the **** out of it? I do not believe that your job is so good and so interesting that you cannot find some humdrum part that is a candidate for automating.

Anyway, once you have the task, think about how to automate it in Perl. It is a very good language for these sort of munging type tasks.

Then, once you have got some results - as I believe you will, look on CPAN and supersearch to see if there was a better way of do what you did, and how to improve your solution. Some monks argue that you should have done this in the first place, but after all you need to start somewhere.
