And well, I realize this is a 'big thing', but I'd miss PerlMonks!

I'd been running down the Java trail and just got frustrated with the lack of real knowledge and community out there... sure there's a a million and six forums out there, but nothing that would tackle difficult questions or offer moral support.

I was also tired of doing file schelping in a shell and reporting in Java... with Perl I got the power and flexibility to do both... so there's another thing I'd miss.
