This is my cat, Elvira.

NOTE: I am no longer using the nick $code or die on this site. Please see my new handle simonflk. That handle matches my PAUSE id for CPAN and is one that I hope I won't grow out of! I will log in as $code or die periodically to check /msg's and update old nodes, but I will not use it for voting purposes. I will leave the content of this page unchanged.
