I could write a long essay but I'll condense it (so rare for me): you need to get out of the house.

Find some interests outside of PerlMonks, the Internet and computers in general. Just as balancing on one foot can become tiring after a while, so can focussing your energies on one thing -- you get stale.

My solution is family (two step-sons, 11 and 15 years old), friends and music (I sing with a group called the Toronto Northern Lights, silver medallists at the last two International Conventions).

I don't know if you belong to a church -- you can get great solace and sense of community from going to church. Maybe take some night courses in something totally unrelated to your main interests. Make a habit of getting books or CDs from your local library. Volunteer somewhere.

Life is short. Get busy!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
