Hi, my name is Ralph Schuler. I live in Switzerland and I'm working as system administrator for a german company which is based in Switzerland. I am married and have two cute daughters.
In my spare time, I love to play chess online, coding Perl and listen music. I play regular blitz chess and Fischer random chess (Chess960). My favorite openings are Queen's Gambit, Caro-Kann Defence and Slav Defence. Besides Perl, I have made projects with Python, PHP, Ruby, VB.NET, VBA, VBS, C#, C, C++, Objective-C and Java. But Perl is still my favourite programming language. Most of the time I listen music on last.fm.
This whole site is running on Perl Dancer as webserver, Perlbal as load balancer and reverse proxy on a 64-bit Debian GNU/Linux 6.0. Both bots Chartbot and SCBot, which deliver data, are also written in Perl. As database backend I am using SQLite.
