What's important to know about me, in this context? Let's see...
(Playing right now: Linkin Park "In The End". What a great song. I normally don't care much for 'spoken word' art, but these guys strike a great balance between the spoken and the sung lyrics. Driving rythm, sweeping guitar chords, and a simple keyboard floating above it all.)
First should be that Perl makes me code with a grin on my face. That hasn't happened since... well, since I opened the shrinkwrap on the first HyperCard that hit the shelf in my town.
Second, I'm new - painfully so - to all things Perl. Granted, TMTOWTDI, but my way usually seems to be the WRONG way! I write code the wrong wrong way, make stupid mistakes, re-invent the wheel rather than use modules from CPAN, etc. Fortunately, as I learn more I'm able to go back to the programs I've written and re-work them.
Goals for tomorrow, while I'm still coherent:
(Playing right now: Joe Satriani "Circles". Satch just plain rocks. Note to self: beat the hell out of the CD player in my car until it works again, so I can listen to "Surfing With The Alien" with the top down before winter!)
