Just a simple [cpan.org] guy, hacking Perl for fun and profit since way back in the last millenium. You may find me hanging around in the monestary [perlmonks.org].

What am I working on right now? Probably the Sprog project [sourceforge.net].

Pudgy little five footer

[ #18140 ]

Last weekend I started building a boat. Sounds grand, but this quote from the instructions that accompany the plans gives some idea of the scope:

«Here's five feet of fun for the whole family. It's a youngsters sailboat that dad can build in a weekend with two panels of plywood and help from the kids.»

Which just goes to show that rampantly over-optimistic project estimation is not the sole preserve of IT practitioners.
