Metadata for toma's journal

[ #9624 ]
I've had one person request that I keep a journal, and I've often wanted to keep one, so I figure I have two potential readers so far.

I've often posted on perlmonks, but I haven't revealed much of what I actually do with perl. So a journal should be handy. I tend to write journal fragments throughout my Mandrake 8.2 system, recording my adventures in coding. I typically investigate about five perl modules per month, and one major open-source package. I'm going to take a shot at recording my adventures here.

Other activity can be found on tomacorp (We're not a corporation), which is mine.

At work I use perl quite a bit. I'm back in the CAD business, trying to make life better and more productive for a few hundred electrical engineers. I have switched between designing hardware and software over the past twenty-some years, and I have recently switched back to software.

At home I use perl as a hobby and I have also been teaching it as a high school course to a very small class.
