I Completely agree. If someone wanted to learn than one will learn.

I taught myself perl and started creating usefull programs within about 6 months. After having done this I qualified for a new scripting position involving VBScript.

Wanting to script rather than my old job, has given me way more than enough motivation to learn a second language.

Side note: Today I am told that I should also learn tcl. .... Away we go!
