in reply to Serious & personal meditation

I guess I was one of the lucky (?) ones. I found PerlMonks while I was unemployed and had plenty of time to devote to it. By the time I found a job, the initial infatuation was wearing off. I wish I could spend more time here but the fact that I can't doesn't consume me.

I suppose one of these days, someone will have to start a PerlMonks Anonymous site. "Hi, I'm Tom. I'm a PerlMonk. I haven't logged in to check my XP in 12 days hours minutes."

90% of every Perl application is already written.
