( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I first thought to delete my account on PM and through away all the code i ever wrote as well as my hand library and forget about everything related to programming.

Don't!

I'm not yet 60 but I've been semi-retired for over a decade (I only work from home; only on projects that interest me; and the only meetings I'll attend are telephone meetings, and then only those with 5 people or less taking part), and trust me, you'll need the mental stimulation.

For all the satisfaction you can derive from all those jobs around the house and garden that you've been promising yourself you'll get to one day -- building a wall; laying a patio; making a replacement screw for the one you lost whilst changing the battery in your watch -- you'll still need the mental stimulation that comes from tackling hard, logical problems like programming. At least I do.

I'd say that is 95% of the reason I still come around this place after 12 years; the supply of stimulating problems to wrap my head around. It is just a shame they are so few and far between these days.

(Sorry to hear you got fired.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
