It happens to be the day I started here at the Monastery as well. A cow orker had been telling me how easy it would be to do what I was doing in Korn shell scripts with Perl for a while so I decided to give it a shot. Turns out, the cow orker didn't know the first thing about Perl and was just spouting off at the mouth. I guess it was fortunate I was frustrated enough to listen to him.
Many of the monks here have watched me "grow up". Most of them would say I still have a lot of growing left to do. I still don't consider myself a "programmer", but I sure do love to program.
