I volunteer. I know a little Perl. Enough to create simple scripts for 
the sysadmin work I do. I have also created sites using CGI 
(HTML::Template, TT2, CGI::App) that seem to work like I want. I keep to 
the PBP book suggestions mostly though not religiously. I have zero 
testing experience.

What I bring:

- 1-2 hours a night (more on the weekends if needed)
- a willingness to learn
- a willingness to be corrected
- I can chat via: IM, irc, email ( or phone sometimes )
- I am on the east coast of the US. I learned timezones are import 
because Shlomi was going to mentor me but Israel->US timezones is too 
big a hurdle at least for me.

My goal is to be able to move into the OS Perl community and give back.

Everything I learn as a "minion" directly helps me be a better 
"programmer" at work as well.

So if anyone is interested in being a mentor post back to this or send 
me an email at my gmail account.
