I suppose it is, hmm...
I feel foolish when I ask questions of a trivial class, when everyone seems to be pushing the limits of specialized areas of the language.

Maybe I tend to feel that way because when I was new here, I was new to everything related to it as well, but near all of the newbies that came after me have a strong footing elsewhere?

    I think you've hit on exactly why I rarely post questions unless I'm just dying to know. I know for a fact that at least 90% of the things I want to ask can be answered by perldoc, google, or Super Search. And on top of that, at least 95% of the answers I can give have already been given by the time I read the question. So most of my posts (actual percentage unknown) involve navel-gazing in the Meditations section.

    I'm not saying it's good or bad, that's just how I end up doing things here.

      Thats generally true yes, but sometimes asking a group of experienced people is still better. For instance they may know your skill set and be able to steer you in a direction that pure research wouldn't take you. I mean thats basically what school in general is about, just a refinement of that basic principle. A library alone is a fine thing, but a library connected to a university full of profs willing to answer your questions and give advice is much much better.

    I'm sure that you always have something to offer, even if it's just commic releif ... that's what most of my posts are (it's a self defense mechinism mostly), that and the content of $thing_i_just_read - which is generally something merlyn wrote years ago anyway
