I Found Out When I Started Learning Perl

I found my old status reports from work, many moons ago, and I found some gems there, but by far this is the most significant one.

From the 1994 Week 24 status report:

Last week's achievements ======================== - MCPS - attended Tiger meeting. - attended M.Carlock's Ofc Parm meeting. - did LTCINV Table Tiger Team Timings. - began learning PERL. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This week's goals ================= - MCPS - think about the MFA pre-development meeting issues & questions... - rewrite my old tools in PERL (for practice). ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ - harass M.Gyger re Vacation Request.

    That would be about the same time as I started...
    I went to university in 1993 and bought my first PC in 1994. A second-hand 386. I did a memory upgrade from 4Mb to 20Mb! How times change...

    When I bought a second-hand 36.6k modem and signed up for a free trial with AOL...well, the world changed...
