Let's see, you have been registered since 1/7/13. Today is 1/10. And you want to know if this site is 'a wast (sic) of time...'.
I've been a Monk a trifle longer than you have. So, when I say that the Monastery is well worth reading every day, I have a bit more perspective than you. Almost 4,000 days more.
I read the SOPW during the first two cups of coffee before I go into the office. (Well, technically I am already in the office, since I work out of my home. I just haven't started working on the code for the current Paying Gig. My time between 0900 and 1630 is billable to a contract; the time before or after is mine.) I think the Perl Monks is worth spending an hour or so a day upon. Your mileage|kilometerage May Vary.
