in reply to Outlining levels of Perl People

I remember something like this a while ago. It was interesting to read and very true. I cannot find it again though. It went something like:

1. Beginner - Spells Perl: PERL. Is confused as to why variables have +certain characters in front of them. 2. User - Understands why it is spelled Perl. Writes basic Perl games +such as hangman. Does not see why he needs to comment code 3. Advanced User - Throughly comments his code. Does not understand th +e greatness that is CPAN. 4. Hacker - Writes his own CPAN modules. Does not like the shift towar +ds Perl 6. 5. Guru - On the development team of Perl 5 and 6. 6. Larry Wall - 'Nuff said.

That is horribly flawed and inaccurate but I hope someone knows and can provide a link to what I mentioned previously.

Update: Found the link. T'was from YAPC 2000.

Update2 Guess I should have given a description of the link (deduced from the fact that anonny below me posted the same link I did. Too late now.)

I'm so adjective, I verb nouns!

chomp; # nom nom nom
