I had a nice chat today with Bill and Holly Ward from Bayview.com. Bill’s been giving PERL training classes and have just started a translation service for translating software and documentation to and from Japanese, so I thought I’d give them a plug. Though he’s a PERL guru, he has none of the arrogance and impatience that you often associate with such people. For years, he’s answered my stupid unix questions (Me: “If you ‘rm -Rf’ something, how do you get it back?” Bill: “Easy – restore from tape…” ) and helped me with the occasional PERL problem.
I also encouraged him to set up a blog, though he’s a bit hesitant. Personally, I hope he does, because blogs are so easy to add pictures to and he’s an excellent photographer.
Bill, check out Movable Type – after all, it’s written in perl!
