in reply to Serious & personal meditation
I just want to point out that you might want to make sure that you don't spend your time watching your XP and missing out on all the perl learning that you can do.
XP by itself means nothing, I look at the other users nodelet, and I see my name above a lot of the names that know a hell lot more than I do about perl, and that alone acts as a reminder that XP is not equal to experience; maybe experience in posting and voting, but not in perl.
He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.
