in reply to My first impression of Rakudo Star ...

Based solely on the announcement, it looks like Rakudo Star is the "first real release of Perl6" that I was so eagerly looking forward to six or eight years ago. Logically, I should be very excited about this, jumping at the bit to try it out ASAP.

Emotionally, for some reason, I find that's not the case now. At the moment, the idea of playing with Perl6 sounds more like work than fun. How did that happen?

Perhaps it's just because it's August, and it's been eighty degrees in the shade at night with a gazillion percent humidity since late April. Maybe when the weather cools down a bit and I get a couple of decent nights' sleep my enthusiasm for Perl6 will return, eh?

    Too little, too late?

      Well volunteered!

        Ironically, sarcasm becomes you. (Or is that backward?)
