It occured to me the other day that I am a pretty good perl programmer.
Or so I think. I then realized that a few months ago I thought the same
thing, and yet looking back I can say that I have come a long way
(certainly in no small part thanks to the Monastery). And prior to that
I also thought I was a good perl programmer. And looking back, well let's
just say he didn't use strict. etc. etc.
Is this a common experience? Does the nature of programming and
the fast-pace of computer-related fields contribute to this phenomenon?
Does it in fact, induce it? Am I (are we) destined to walk this path
evermore; ants on mobius? Who is Ru Paul?
