Hey all,

I have been using Perl for about 1.5 years. I have been on PerlMonks for a while and finally decided to venture over here and see what is going on.

A quick background on me. I graduated High School in 1995 and went right to the University of Maryland with no idea of what I wanted to do. I took 5 years (while working full time as well) to get my 4 year (bachelor's) degree. Although I am a computer geek now, I got my degree in Philosophy.

Even though I have a Bachelor's in a non-technical field, I currently work as a contractor for NASA. I am the lead Engineer for the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer satellite and I am part of the team that is building the Space Technology 5 constellation.

I have used Perl to automate many menial tasks at my job and look for any opportunity to use Perl to improve our job procsses. I am known at work as the "Uber Debugger" because I am good at eyeballing code and spotting errors. anyway, if you want more background, check out my website...BillWFriend.Com

Talk at you Later! -Kevin
