No code here,,,just a crazy rant :

I am starting to re-learn perl and entered the monastery so I could say this...I am over whelmed. I used perl before and got paid for it, and walked away, actually more like slipped away, and now I've decided I don't want to do anything but perl, but, it's like I can't fit it all into my skull, and I feel like my plane is crashing.

I've been on this site quite a bit, and it helped me to learn XRC for wxperl , which I quite like, but --- I'm trying now to figure the best way to distribute that, and that's causing me some distress, and I've drifted into Perl 6,,,,which may be like a snow bank at the end of a rough ski hill...crashing. Is it hard, is it soft? I can't seem to fit 5 into my head...so where does 6 go?

Actually, I also had the exact same experience with pde's - partial differential equations. I wonder if there's a connection there? Total blind panic.

I don't know, just lot's of questions, and I don't feel like I'm sufficiently fluent to trust I'll go in the right direction. In practical terms that means I can read it fine, but writing it is difficult. Too many pointers pointing in too many different directions.

Originally, when I thought about getting onto this site, I thought I would ask if there are any Minnesota perl'ers that want to help create a Minnesota perl-mongers --- so at least that some kind of a question - that might make sense.

Sorry, crazy rant --- I feel like a could use some guidance or maybe a hug? -- Couldn't help it. Does anybody else feel this way? Or is everyone too busy for that?

I will try to avoid these kinds of emotional outbursts in the future.
