David Blackstone has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering and nine years of experience at a wireless telecommunications company, where he learned Perl and never looked back. J. David has an advantage in that he works really hard, he has a passion for writing good software, and he knows many of the world's best Perl programmers.
LFS tries to give compile times for each package. Of course, these vary wildly depending on your system. So, I notice that at some point they quit giving the times in minutes and started giving them in Static Bash Units, or SBUs.
