Hello, my name is Gary Allen Vollink. I found this site while poking around for information about a module that I found on CPAN.

So, from a CPAN package, to an Author's personal web site, to said Author's
use Perl->Journal();
And just like that, I created an account. I've been known to hang out on Slashdot, and recognized the "slashcode" interface immediately.

Anyway - I've been a Perl user for about 8 years now, although I've only been heavily writing large web-apps in Perl for the last four years (give or take).

There's a fair chance that I'll be doing some patch-work in modules in the near future (well, I've already started - we'll see how the Author reacts). I'm starting a largish project, and I'll be needing to squeeze some extra functionality out of some existing Perl libraries.

Anyway, nice to meet you.
