Online friends and such

[ #1200 ]
It's a weird thing. I don't know why I mentioned my divorce in my latest journal. Probably I had to just acknowledge that it is reality and write it down in public somewhere. And I did. I admit I was afraid that it would cause some people to avoid me for doing it. That was silly of course.

Actually these times are times when you get to recognize your friends. Quite a lot of people have mailed me, /msg'd me on IRC or on PerlMonks to express their support. It really helped me.

So all of this means that I'm *not* moving :) Not in the forseeable future. Although I would have to, because living in such a large house all by myself is weird, especially when 90% of all the stuff my wife and I collected over the years will move with her. That will leave a very empty house. But don't pity me. We made the dicision together, and we're happy that we did.

What am I doing? This is a Use Perl journal! I'm writing about my personal life again. Oh's cheaper than therapy ;-).
