Hi Rick

I'm glad that someone is successfully pulling people to the Perl community.

Like I said in our meeting, I'm more than welcome to help, so you can pass my email. 
Bear in mind, that there are some things obfuscated even to me, and require a higher power of a Perl developer to understand and teach. :)

Thank you
Paulo Favinha
