Unix user since 1991: SunOS, Solaris, AIX, Ultrix, Dynix, HP/UX, A/UX, IRIX, Xenix, Unicos, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Linux, Machten, Cygwin and probably some other stuff I don't remember.
I'm a C and lisp hacker at heart, but I've come to love perl with as much, if not more fervor.
Also fascinated by music, aviation (I flew jets in the US Air Force for a while), unmanned air vehicles, space launch, and sailing/windsurfing. Recently bought a Hobiecat Getaway which I sometimes sail with deprecated.
I don't spend that much time reading perlmonks. Real life is more exciting and educational.
