About me

Ralph Schuler Hi, my name is Ralph Schuler. I live in beautiful Switzerland and I'm working as GIS software developer for a cantonal administration. I am married and am a proud father of two cute daughters.

In my spare time, I love to play chess online, coding software and listen music.
I play regular blitz chess and Fischer random chess (Chess960). My favorite openings are Queen's Gambit, Trompowsky-Attack, Dutch Stonewall and Alekhine's Defence.
My main programming language is Perl, but I have some experience with Python, PHP, Ruby, VB.NET, VBA, VBS, C#, C, C++, Objective-C and Java.
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.

Here are some of my accounts:

*8.5-8.5); $k=chr(oct(hex(45))*oct(hex(46))/
$y=~s/ho/no/g;$a=$y;$a=~s/hJ/he/g;@a= split(/t/
