in reply to perlmonks.org: More than just a Perl resource?

I think AgentM is on the right track with having specific catagories and not just a "!perl" (interesting as it is to see what hits the top of his list for areas of concern :P:P)
I would be very interested in swapping computer knowledge in some areas, but not in others, and having to weed through a bunch of stuff I really don't want to read in order to posts that do interest me would more then likely just cause me to skip the whole section.

how about this:
Networking
Hacking (as in 'I am trying to write a perl intrepeter for my TI-85', not Cracking. A place for hobby code)
Hardware
Unix/Linux

These might be a good place to start. They are all still indirectly perl related and it will allow the community to monitor the affects of non-perl related sections into the web site. If those go well, THEN I would suggest branching out for weird areas like "Ovid's Garage" and "Used Firearms Classifieds".
BTW, I would also like to suggest that if non-perl groupings appear that we have a "!perl Newest Nodes" to keep site content seperate to a degree to allow for easier access to perl information.

Thanks,

P.S. If you haven't guessed already, I thought the !Perl term was fantastic:P
