Andy thanks for all the work on the website. It's nice to see new and
current materials out there. More power to you ;) It's also nice to see the
groups' internet service moved to pm.org; removing our dependence on any
particular group member. I.e., I'm no longer important. If I get hit by a
bus... Andy already knows all the logins and passwords necessary to keep
things running smoothly.
Hopefully in February I'll be able to compliment the little bit of
HTML::Mason, with a book review of Paul (Pavel) Kulchenko's "Programming Web
Services with Perl".
Paul was a local member of kc.pm for a long time. He still part of kc.pm,
but now lives in Seattle, WA. He's also the author of Perl's SOAP::Lite
module. I've been subscribed to the SOAP::Lite mailing list for a long time
now, and I have to say that he's one of those rare talented programmers with
an equally rare share of patience and good humor. If you're at all
interested in cross-language and cross-platform RPC mechanisms you might
consider checking out SOAP::Lite on search.cpan.org or picking up a copy of
his new book (http://www.soaplite.com/#BOOKS).
Now that we've solved the KCLUG conflict. -KCLUG meets the 3rd Tuesday of
every month... I'm wondering if there are any other conflicts standing in
the way of attendance? Perhaps there's a Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS)
conflict ;) ?
Seriously though, if anyone has concerns please air them. I often fall into
the trap of blindingly steering roughshod over the desires and interests of
others... in the pursuit of the things I find interesting. And turning a
deaf ear towards those interests which don't fall into line with my own. I
say this because its not intentional, nor am I altogether conscious of it
when doing so.
I would like to see kc.pm grow back to a stable level of active members and
participation. And I don't want to put myself in the way of that goal. I'd
like kc.pm to be useful and rewarding to all its members, and not just those
of a particular bent or interest.
So please speak up on the mailing list and share with the rest of us things
you'd like to do or see the group put more emphasis on. Perhaps ideas for
the website, a group project, meetings with a social rather than technical
agenda, or anything else.
