"Keep moving forward" Shake it off, and step up. There's progress to be made, and no time to waste dwelling on past failures.

Personal Philosophy

"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice" *Note: I'm sorry for the times I wasn't nice.

A mistake can be valuable or costly, depending on how faithfully you pursue correction.

Why Perl?

In my view, the main things about Perl that make it better than any other language are...

  • its Flexibility (letting you do things the way you want)
  • its Community of friendly and extremely intelligent persons (perlmonks,, comp.lang.perl.misc for example)
  • its "Culture of good documentation"
  • the CPAN (and all that it entails and implies)
  • the license to use it in complete freedom
