An introduction is in order

Hello, everyone. I recently sent in my first assignment for nitpicking, so I figured I'd introduce myself.
By day I'm a production support programmer/analyst on a large PeopleSoft implementation (and I also support data warehouse reporting using a tool called BusinessObjects). I know some basic SQR (nasty, ugly language) and PeopleCode, but I don't get to use those skills as often as I'd like. It mostly amounts to finding errors in other people's code and writing short fixes.
I'm interested in doing more real programming. So far I like Java quite a bit, and I've been dabbling with Smalltalk the past few weeks (nothing beyond the 'tutorial' stage). I don't have a good explanation for it yet, but there's something very appealing to me about object oriented languages.
