The picture above shows a part of Petra, a city mostly carved into sandstone. It lies about 2-3 hours south of Amman and dates back to the 6th century BC.
And no, the monk sitting there is not me. You might rather find me on a picture from Berne, Switzerland, or maybe Belfast, Northern Ireland. And it wouldn't be in a monk's attire.
I started with Perl sometime in Spring 2001. I'm not exactly good at it, but various website and database projects always make me learn more - learning by trying and failing, you might call it. Of course, the Monastery helps a lot.
You'll find the history of my nick here as a reply to what George_Sherston brilliantly started. If and whenever I find the time, I might be adding to this bio, but to be honest, at the moment I just can't think of much more which could be of any interest. /msg me if you want to know more, or if you're somewhere near Berne..
