Story
Tagline
I'm a Perl programmer and far too educated to be a nerd
Introduction
I am a great believer in Freudian psychoanalysis, swim often, and love dogs such as my Mini Fox Terrier, and Italian Greyhounds.

I read many novels (usually by women of course because their books are much more appealing), science-oriented books, and things like the history of the Maya.

In the distant past I played a lot of chess.

Bragging rights
I'm the president of the Silver Sharks swimming club, and have published about 85 Perl modules.
