With a QFH antenna you can pick up weather satellite radio transmissions and convert them to images on a modern PC.
Starting on a Commadore C64 in the mid-80's, Rob has been programming ever since, though thankfully the hardware has improved slightly.
After learning Basic, Visual Basic, Assembly, C, and C++, Rob eventually found himself needing to create a forum for a personal website; that's when he found Perl.
He's been developing in Perl for the past 10 years in various dev-manager roles. He has a few contributions on CPAN and works primarily with Plack and Catalyst, on a CentOS/MySQL stack.
He's always keen for his team(s) to understand where their applications are running, and what is going on outside the Perl-space they're familiar with.
This blog aims to cover the various technologies he's worked with over the years, and found useful to know about when working specifically on web-apps.
