in reply to Stupid Emotional Programmer Attachment, anyone?

I haven't been at Perl long enough to write something to really be proud of over the long haul, but I think each one of us is proud of/pleased/happy with stuff we write every day, even, as Merlyn says, it's just for a few minutes. Otherwise, why crawl out of bed in the morning!? Even when I finish a little CGI form processor, and the client says, "Wow, cool" (because they think it's all magic), I'm proud, or at least pleased.

Guess I'll have to take my pride in small increments. Then later, I can write stuff that will feed the poor, bring peace to the world, etc. But for now, I'm proud finish something that uses strict and checks for taint.

Not to patronize any monk in particular, I'm often proud, by association, of a clever piece of code I've seen in a reply to a SoPW question. My reaction is to just chuckle out loud (strange looks from the family) and wish I had thought of it.

Write on, monks.
