- I am an analyst/programmer since 1988 working for Procura in Heerhugowaard, The Netherlands.
I am specialized in data-analysis and -conversion, mainly with databases and data-connections as focus area.
Many know me for my work on the CSV data format with Perl. I wrote a fast, versatile and flexible CSV parser for Perl 5 and ported that to Perl 6.
In my daily work, I mainly use the Perl and C programming languages. My desktop is Linux (OpenSUSE with Plasma 5) on my workstations and my laptop. Next to Linux my daily work is also concentrated on commercial OS's like HP-UX.
On the internet I am widely known as "Tux".
My personal preferences can be viewed on http://tux.nl.

Using GeoIP to monitor break-in attempts — 20 minutes; accepted — August 9 (Fri), Room %, 12:30
Access to sites or applications that are (very) region specific, like elections, might well want to block regions that try to break-in and/or corrupt the data.
When a firewall or similar monitor reports break-in attempts, it might be useful to see the region the attempt comes from.
