you still have strange views of my career. i have worked with some of 
the ugliest code and team(mis)work in existence. i have recently been 
doing perl support of a team where explaining why globals are bad took a 
few weeks to sink in to one member. you already made a judgment of my 
perl hunting and now another on my main income. i also get royalties 
from o'reilly for stuff. i have more pans in the fire than you would 
imagine. the reason my perl hunting is so good is BECAUSE of my activity 
in perl development, support, training, writing, etc. i can speak perl 
to both sides and do a proper match and never need buzzwords or similar
