in reply to Any known problems with Perl?

Well, to be honest... yes, there are some pretty significant problems with Perl. Here are the two major ways Perl has caused me strife:
  • The first major problem is that when I started using Perl, I no longer had the drive to play video games. Perl was too much fun and my World of Warcraft gear suffered terribly. As a result, my guild mates stopped asking me to raid dungeons with them. I felt really left out.
  • The other problem is that now I have too much time on my hands. Perl has made it so that I finish all my work too quickly. As a result, I'm getting more done at work, but it looks like I'm doing less since I just sit around watching YouTube videos (that I download using Perl) while my scripts run. Also, I now no longer have an excuse to get out of social engagements since I never have any work that I need to bring home in the evenings or on the weekends.

So, my advice? Keep away from Perl, because once you start... you won't be able to stop.
