in thread Twenty laborious years -- and I'm glad to be here

    As a long-time student of Saints in our Book, ...

Oh, my goodness. Even though I've been on this site for a ridiculously long time, I also look at this page occasionally. It amazes me that some users who haven't been here in years are still far higher in the Experience numbers. Still, it's fun to contribute now and then, and explain what community means to the infinite supply of newbies who continue to arrive every week. ("Still? I was s-u-r-e that Perl was dead." "Uh .. nope. Not even *close*.") :)

Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

    Nevermind (macht nichts). As a consolation, your entertaining Twenty Laborious Years meditation has helped you sprint clear of the redoubtable jdporter (who is now eating your dust) ... and I further predict you'll beat him to the coveted Chancellor level within a week or two ... and then, mühelos, sail past the delightful (but currently inactive) planetscape to earn a well-deserved spot in the coveted top 50 before your next anniversary. :)
