in reply to Giving Thanks
I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone here in the Perl Community and at PerlMonks, not just for freely sharing each other's knowledge of the Perl language and helping with people's problems, but for having a real community spirit.
The fact that we can build a community based on a shared interest that spans across continents, with such a variety of different people from all sorts of occupations, religions, and walks of life, means that there is hope for the human race yet, in spite of recent world events.
And on a more personal note I'd like to thank everyone for giving support through goodwill and humour to me when times have been difficult, and for your patience when I start filling up the CB with my personal problems and angst. It may not seem much but a *hugs* sent across the telephone wires can bring a lot of comfort.
I only hope that I can follow the same examples that I have seen in the few months that I have been here, and that I will be as helpful in PerlMonks as some of you have been to me.
