For reals, Who cares? Level 1 is just as good as 10 in my opinion. I really have no interest in taking this subject much farther. Who wants stupid XP arguements to split the site? Not me. I just want to learn. Learn Perl. Like shadox said, "to help and get help". Now that may sound funny to some of you who like to think it means something else but he's right, we are all hear to boost each other and to boost our own knowledge; not to make 3 accounts to boost our XP on one account. That is very annoying BTW when people do that.
