Err ...

Started programming when I was 12 (1980) in BASIC and Z-80 assembly.

Started programming perl ... oh, I forget, a while ago.

I have since written some extremely sloppy code for many different uses.

Like a online quote generator (lo-end relational database) and some search engines.

I'm easily bored, so I have a lot of hobbies: perl, bass guitar, sound recording, graphic design, graffiti (yes, that's me; no, I don't do it, I take pictures of it), and other ways of wasting time.

HyperZonk for more personal stuff, if you're really that bored ...

My Favorite Nodes

Principle versus Personalities addresses important issues for the our community's well-being. IMO, of course.
Moron Users is an important thing for every programmer to try to keep in mind, even when we're frustrated (so hard).

My Favorite Monks

Darn, that's a hard one. Pretty much everyone I've come across has been friendly and helpful. Advice: hang around, see who is helping others with questions and who is fun and helpful in the Chatterbox. But here are some of the people I've gotten to know (in no particular order): I could go on and on (as a matter of fact this list keeps growing when I remember or meet new people), but these are the people who I've had particularly good experiences with.

One last important mention: merlyn has taught me and many other people more about Perl than we ever thought we'd know. I don't know him all that well, but if he says something about Perl, you should probably listen.
