|We don't bite newbies here... much|
It was a long journey for me. For several years I struggled with dollars, at-signs, and percents in order to uncover the sheer beauty that lies within the gems that are some of the most elegant CPAN modules.
I wandered alone through this path until I was able to see the beauty where it is. But I wanted more. I wanted to be able to create this kind of beauty by myself. I just didn't know how.
Until today, when I stumbled at the doors of this Monastery. As I entered here I realized that this should be the place where the light would be shown to me. I was amazed by the wisdom I could see here. I was delighted by the beatiful gems of Perl code I found. I was paralized by the sheer grandeur of the resources available.
Until I was shocked to see that Paco was here before. Paco, that good old friend of mine that one day said to me that he had a problem to solve and that he would look for an answer somewhere. And so he went. Never to be seen again.
Paco, where are you?
