Glad I found this list! And since you'll all be seeing more of me, I thought I'd give a short intro of myself.
I was born and raised in the Netherlands - and very nearly moved to the US but that won't happen now that my employer has been taken over by another company, so I'll stay in beautiful Amsterdam.
I've been working in IT for many years, different functions, but whatever I do, I still like coding, so if it isn't part of my job, I'll do it in my own time (or both) ;-) I've used many languages, and though at present my Perl is at an intermediate level, it helps that a number of years ago I write a fairly extensive toolset in AWK. (It also sometimes confuses me :) That toolset was to support Clarion programmers; a while later I set out to make "wrappers" round many Win32 GUI functions since while Clarion for Windows was easy to use, it also shielded you from a lot of functionality. That was never finished due to lack of time; but looking at the Win32::GUI package now I can imagine the amount of work that went into it - and admire a job well done!
Yes, I know it's incomplete, there are holes in the documentation, and some things don't work right yet - it's still a fantastic job. And fun to work with.
Right now I'm working on a biggish project in my own time again - wanting to parse XML DTDs (with the aim of generating files based on the information), and using Win32::GUI to build a Wizard-like user interface to drive the process. Both the parsing and the GUI take a lot of learning how to use it at this point, so I'm alternating between the two.
That should give you a little background, and context for the questions, suggestions and workarounds I'll come up with!
