@TheGibson I got a job offer after spending some (too much) time on writing a Perl script that did traffic accounting from TIS FWTK log files, 1995-ish. It worked quite well, until one day it didn't, and all the output was garbage.
I didn't know about integer overflows.
Luckily for me, Math::BigInt showed up somewhere around the time that happened.
