in reply to Thanks, Monks!
Cheers on your 100th post homie :)
I come and go around here depending on what I'm doing in life (as I am not a programmer), and I always appreciate witnessing new Perl enthusiasts reaching milestones. I feel that those who are proud of their accomplishments (solving a new problem with code or posting their $x post on PM) deserves a congratulations.
Stick with it (both Perl and PerlMonks). Regardless of where you travel or what you do for a living, after having learnt even the most basic Perl will have you thinking about all problems from different angles, and the people here at PerlMonks will always ensure you have a place to come back to whenever you need it and for whatever you need.
