in reply to What can bring the excitement back to Perl?

I have a interesting position (from reading many of the posts above), I started out with PHP. I switched to Perl because I wanted to get away from web programming and most of the really cool "features" that I liked in PHP were inspired by Perl (case and point: the preg suite). So if most of the things I love about PHP were inspired by Perl why not go to the source?

Recently, with Perl, I have done things that I could never do with PHP (well, not easily) and that alone brings me excitement. I believe "Making easy things easy and hard things possible" is very exciting to any programmer.

[Corion]: Yay, vacation time now - one week off work (but a Perl workshop in the middle ;)) )
[talexb]: TStanley I just realized that I was in your area for a convention back in April. We were at the high school for the weekend, the one with the long driveway. Nice spot.
[TStanley]: I am heading to Arlington, Virginia next week, then I get to spend an entire week at home. Looking forward to that as I will have spent 7 weeks on the road by the end of next week
[talexb]: That's a long road trip. I haven't travelled for business in years.
