I am an experienced Perl programmer new to freelancing. I would love to help anyone in simple to moderate level scripting. Some areas of perl and related fields that im skilled in (but not limited to) are:
**Note: These are only highlights that I can recall at the moment. I can do more in perl than listed below, and generally help with many other things. Also, I am mostly a backend programmer. I could create a script to do almost any task you might want, but the visual aspect displayed to the end user would not be much more than a simple, to the point display. I'm not very skilled in the graphical/visual aspect of internet programming. I offer most of my services for FREE, but on projects that I deem as very large or time consuming, I may request payment. My fees would be no where near as high as a proffessional charges. I would want at most possibly 25$ for a long and tedious project. All I ask is that upon the completion of a project, however small, an email be sent to me where you provide your name and a description of the help I provided. I would use this for my portfolio.
Pattern/Text matching: Applies to validating form entries, searching for naughty words or phrases to edit/remove, text-file based data storage, low level simple encryption techniques, etc.
MySQL Database usage/administration (implementing DBD and DBI): Great for online games, forums, news groups, keeping user/member information, and storing any other kind of data you could need.
Mail::Sendmail (and some other) mail clients: I'm able to meet your email sending needs for probably any occasion.
Creation of a member/non member area: I would be able to set up a user creation, login, removal, suspension, etc. system for a website using perl and a mysql database (or text file). Creation of an admin area would be no problem.
*Some* experience in Perl GUI: through the use of Win32::GUI I am learning how to make applications using perl. I have a perl compiler that could compile a collection of scripts into one executable.
Use of MD5 Encryption: I would be able to use encryption on any or all of the data passed to/from a database or script.
Setup of a forum: I could create a simple custom forum, or would be willing to install a premade forum the user provides.
Installation/Configuration of 3rd party scripts: Found a great, free script that fits your needs perfectly, but doesnt seem to work right? I would gladly help you configure a 3rd party perl or php (only) script to work with your website or personal server.
---Misc. / Related Fields---
Personal Web Server on *Windows*: I would gladly help someone set up or configure either Apache or IIS on a windows environment.
Mail Server on *Windows*: I would also help set up a mail server on a system, so that users running their own server could send their own email.
Installation of MySQL, Perl, PHP: I would be able to help anyone set up these services on their computer so that they would be able to use these services on a personal web server, eliminating the need to upload a file after every change.
Installation of hardware: I would be able to walk someone through installing a new piece of hardware. I would assist in helping install a new RAM stick, CPU, hard-drive, any form of optical drive, floppy drive, printer, scanner, camera, monitor, video card, etc. It's all the same.
Windows 98, XP, XP Pro Troubleshooting: I wouldn't mind helping you if you have some annoying problem on your system thats been getting on your nerves.
Locating useful software: I would anyone obtain software that they are in need of (NOT pirated/stolen material, user subject to terms and conditions of the owner of software provided). Sorry, I don't know much in terms of legal stance, and I wanted to make it clear I'm not doing anything wrong.
