Sardinia is quite a warm place (we had only a couple of days under 0 Celsius weeks ago), so I guess I don't know what a really cold winter is. Anyway, I spent my two weeks of Christmas holidays sleeping; I spent a lot of time with my wife, too
And... no Perl, no computers, almost no Internet... I couldn't believe I didn't need them!!!
The very nature of Perl to be like natural language--inconsistant and full of dwim and special cases--makes it impossible to know it all without simply memorizing the documentation (which is not complete or totally correct anyway).
