My name is David Mueller, I'm 30 years old, and have been working with perl for over 10 years.
I am a huge geek, and have been known to spend my free time just reading the perl man pages or one of my many O'Reilly books. I love computers, writing code, and just about anything hi-tech.

Tell you what. Let's just issue a mandatory warning at the startup of every Perl script that says: "Don't be stupid." --(His holiness) Larry Wall
