        @morrick I feel the same pain sometimes, but I've learned to be gentle with myself and keep moving on one step at a time otherwise the demons in my head win. Part of my posting pattern here is a reminder to myself mostly that I did something useful in life

            @morrick I wish I could say that. I lived long enough to know my disorganized habits coupled with an easily distractible nature are what does me in before I get to finish anything I'm proud of. Still, there are a few things I don't mind having done right.

                                Uninstalled (yesterday) perl6 from Debian 6 and now using rakudo-star directly from site. Advantages? - did not take long to install - up-to-date with latest - installs in user's home - feature complete and up-to-date so video examples should work
