There's something magic involved with Perl.

There's lots of programming languages out there and many of them have forums dedicated to the language. Their forums have plenty of users and plenty people that answer questions.

But, I've yet to find another language that really has a community the way Perl does.

Perhaps it's all related to the Love many of us feel towards Perl. It just isn't the same as other languages.

(this space is reserved for the really kick-ass punchline I planned to write here. But, by the time I'd got here, I'd forgotten it.)

If you haven't already seen Clay Shirky on Love, Internet Style. Go watch it. Now.

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
