Although I don't post often, I am a regular lurker at the Perl Monastery
where I go by the name Erudil.
- My home node
- camel code - my best known obfuscated Perl program
- if you liked the code, you'll love the T-shirt

used my code on their shirts.
I received one from them on 2001-09-11, an otherwise awful day.
- Some of my other obfuscations:
