in reply to Awakening
I know the feeling.
I have come to enjoy computers, coding, and my work so much that I sometimes have to remind myself that I'm getting paid for this. I love my job, I love my profession.
I love tinkering, and perl, MySQL, Linux, and computers give me the chance to express myself in a free, logical way.
You begin to develop more logical thinking processes when you code. I find myself going about other aspects of my life with a Perl-ish way of doing things, some good, some bad.
