( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It is difficult being new to anything, and sometimes we seek the comfort of others that are just as new as we. In doing so, we feel that no one knows more than we do, so no one can point out our flaws. We become a headless, directionless, comforted mass. We have no one to learn from or follow, and the ones we do follow, are following others.

Being forced to swim (or at least float around watching the swimmers) is much better for the newbie and the group as a whole.

It teaches the newbie the rules, and the community patience.

I gave you a ++, though. Don't apologise for what you think. You are a contributing part of this community.

    [marto]: hey Corion, good weekend?
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, even though I didn't write any code :)
    [Corion]: But at least I have a plan of action to move the site to https, played some (free!) VR games with friends and watched the plans for the next German Perl workshop progress ;)
    [Corion]: AltSpace VR is amazingly good - highly polished and with some of the games you get for free what you'd pay EUR 20 or EUR 40 otherwise
    [Corion]: But maybe it's also due to that I play with friends, which makes a game more enjoyable anyway ;)
