simple + wrong → wrong

easier this way + wrong → wrong

works in most cases + wrong → ri…, surprise! wrong

What do you think your references from your fellow devs are going to look like?

Sure, I’d recommend him. He’s great to have on the team. Built-in job security since nothing he writes works without constant fixes.

No, it’s fun seeing how many unused modifiers can go on a regular expression.

Truthfully, I’ve learned more from reading his code than from all the Perl books on my shelf. For example I never once had to use the debugger before I started working with him. Now I need to use it almost every day.
