There's more than one way to do things

I also definitely enjoy non-programming time. Don't get me wrong, programming (especially in Perl) is a joy, but unless I'm in a zone, it's hard to sit still for more than an hour or so at a time. Frequent 5- to 10-minute breaks really boost my productivity by allowing my brain to rest and recuperate just a bit. Simply using Perl also boosts my productivity, since most programming can be done more quickly in Perl than other languages.

But anyway, I agree that there are many other things in life to be enjoyed. I'm also a chessplayer, an avid reader, a church-goer, a husband and soon-to-be father... and work is definitely a secondary priority to my family. I think it's great to round out one's time doing something other than coding.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
