After many years, I’ve slowly accepted that I am actually a programmer. No, not a particularly gifted programmer - but I do love programming.

For many years, I held that I was just a systems administrator. Of course, being a half-decent sysadmin means you can at least program your way out of a tight spot…

But then, suddenly, you are hooked and find programming is a way of life.

Still, I am far from a talented programmer. But I’ll work on it!

As of early 2008, I am a keen Perl, Ruby and Bash programmer. I stay as far away as possible from Javascript. I shudder at the thought of writing Java, recalling earlier traumas. And I’ll have to admit to my psycotherapist I have still not recovered from my many years of BASIC.
