in reply to Why Perl Monks Works for Me
I have been here since 8/16/2001. I first surfed by, looking for perl information on the web. My job at the time was terminally boring; and I was interested in expanding my perl expertise. I had first touched perl about 3 years earlier; and had done some expansion of some one else's code; but not a lot from scratch on my own.
Perlmonks was refuge from boredom, then. Now, its a website I can visit and still look nominally like I am working; because my job now includes the use of perl from time to time.
