in reply to JAPH and Perl Monks

I find myself drawn on a daily basis to PM too. I currently hate my job/position, haven't done coding in about 2 months and I feel that I'm wilting away, and my new job offer, I'm not sure what I'll be doing (java, etc.) but when I get there, there I will be, and then I will know. Maybe I will Perl again, I'm not sure what the future applications at this new company holds for me.
I don't go home and code, I basically just check my email and surf for cheap airfare/vacations, but this community is actually another social group or circle that I belong to. I have made comments in the past here, both positive and negative, but that is one of the plus' with this site, expression, not only within the Perl community, but the community that has evolved as a whole. I have done one or two helpful perlscripts here at work, but I feel that they are in no way as creative as what is posted here. I'm quite amazed at the creativity that I see posted with the scripts and I personally feel that I will never be a 'hardcore' programmer like some here, it's just not me... such as you stated, but I do have a sense of belonging for that common link that binds people in any way. I learned Perl on the job, and came here and got alot of great advice and ever since I have been drawn on a daily basis when at work to log on, see the new comments posted, vote occassionally, check out the whitty remarks on that week's poll, and get a bit of relief from my anti-social work environment here.
one last comment..
I never wrote a JAPH thing either! No worries.
