I know that a lot of people are annoyed by mt2k
and his tone and his actions, and his general demeanor, but...
like I say, there are beginners in Perl, and I hope that we don't drive them away, there are beginners in life ( at 16, mt2k
has another 60+ years to go )and while they can be annoying, they need guidance. And unlike Perl, where we can say RTFM, there is no real 'manual' for life. So I try to remain patient and positive with mt2k
. Not to say that people have not been patient, but I have not known a teenager that does not test my patience on a regular basis. Hell, I'm amazed I was not strangled when I was a teenager.
I hope you don't leave. When you ask a Perl question, or talk about what you are learning, I am amazed, because at your age, I was spending my time tossing pizza dough in the air and marvelling at the jumbo size Mt Dews at Taco Bell.
Stick with it kid, it will be alright.
