I'm a third generation computer geek. I happen to like Perl, Ruby, XHTML, and C, in no particular order. I happen to dislike Visual Basic, VBScript, Python, and Java.
I'm a Linux geek — I'm a fan of Debian in particular. I know a lot about Windows system administration. The knowledge and experience that goes with my familiarity and expertise with Windows is part of the reason I like Debian GNU/Linux so much.
That's it for now.

I have several articles published at TechRepublic and builder.com by now, and several more awaiting editing and publication all under my legal name, Chad Perrin. I've been commissioned by an editor at TR to write an article that will be featured in a book. I'm doing most of my technical blogging at SOB now, including stuff about Perl , Python , and a comparison of Ruby and Python
An article I'm submitting for publication today is actually an expansion of a concept I first floated at PerlMonks , but with a great deal more detail and explanation. It is, of course, about Perl.
