Nice idea Jacinta to intro and spread some perl joy.
I'm self-employed - started off with perl as a academic sysadmin in the perl4 days - it was great for automating and web work and a lot faster than coding in C
Turned my hand to IT contracting (networking, security, glorified sysadmin) where I continue to 'build up my toolbox' with nifty perl code/utils etc.
It's fantastic for glueing disparate systems together - mostly I work on unix systems but when you have to automate something from Win32 land it's quite doable.
The funniest perl experience I can remember is meeting Randal at a SANS conference then seeing him getting into Karaoke that night - I think he enjoys it more than his coding!
