This is my personal dumping ground. It has all sorts of things that don't belong other places. Sometimes it has it has useful things. Usually, it does not.
There is no order, implied or otherwise to these things.
- Me on MetaCPAN
I write Perl. In fact, I managed to persuade someone to pay me to write Perl.

- The Rite-Aid Game of Life Analysis
Back when I had a "real" job that involved sitting in a cubicle and answering calls, I was lucky enough to work for a soul-crushing organization that hadn't quite perfected the art of crushing souls and let us haul our personal computers, ipods, and other electronic secrets-stealing devices in and fiddle during downtime.

- PicoHitler Conversion Tool
Is something really "worse than Hitler"? Now you can find out.
- Best Buy Actually Only Sort of Sucks
A story about how I got Best Buy to pay for a US$30 remote that should've come with my $700 television, and how it only took emailing the Board of Directors.
