One of the systems programmers cornered me and wanted to more about "this perl thing." He was amazed that yesterday I was talking about parsing the log files and today I was actually ready to implement the solution. He was really impressed when I explained that doing remote backups of each server's log files would be a cakewalk, and that the code was already written for us in the POD.
So, I spent a few minutes showing him the script, explaining CPAN, and pointing him to Activestate.com, and letting him know that he was more than welcome to borrow from my library. Ker-ching! If this keeps up, I may actually be able to convince the higher-ups to send me to Perl-related conventions.
It's time to go home, kick back, and enjoy a few well-deserved cold ones. Did I say "few" . . .
