I can just hope more of those newbies are like me (ehrm, like, what I try to do). I am reading my head off, trying to learn here and elsewhere
as much as possible. The Perl Monks website, forum, databases, it offers so immensely an amount of information, so many questions have been asked AND answered, it's more and more difficult for a newbie to ask a good new question.
I'm learning Perl at the moment. For the third time in my life. Finally, I've got a real goal: to be able to maintain a small content management system around my own website, with a lot of links, small texts and articles and pictures. And to build and maintain a small web shop for my little company.
What can I say about that? Many people have done that before me. So, I'll just be a humble monk and explore this monastary, gain wisdom, read what they've asked and what was answered to them. Maybe I can come up with a good question. But mostly, I'll just learn and applicate the knowledge.
I mirror myself a bit to David Carradine in the tv series "Kung Fu", who was addressed as "grasshopper" by (at least) one of his teachers. I'm the patient and eager grasshopper and urge my fellow monks to be eager and patient grasshoppers as well. Hey, just 7 writeups and I am a monk already. Yeah, cool.
