Curtis -

I don't know about the rest of your but, I always felt there might be more
to benchmarking and I feel that I've only scratched the
surface. Then again if there is just not much more to it and people tell me
that then I'll finally be rid of this awful feeling :).

> Subject: Next Perl Mongers meeting
> Hello all,
> The last Perl Mongers meeting was a great success.  We had
> between 15 and 20 people (depending on
> how you counted) and a lot of great discussion, some of it even
> about Perl.
> I was concerned that there was no convenient way to schedule
> future meetings without *someone*
> being left out, but there was a unanimous agreement that
> Wednesdays work well.  Barring something
> unforeseen, future meetings will be monthly on the second
> Wednesday of the month.  We could still
> use more suggestions on office space.
> Also, if anyone has ideas for technical talks they would be
> interested in or are willing to give,
> please let us know!  Some ideas include:
>     Common CGI security issues (I might give this talk)
>     Writing Inline code (embedding another programming language in Perl)
>     Using Parse::RecDescent
>     Regular expression tricks
>     Obfu Perl explanations
>     Perl Object-Oriented Persistence
> I have no idea of the relative skill level of people on this
> list, so the above categories may be
> too basic or too advanced (I suspect both, depending on the
> audience).  More ideas and feedback
> are welcome.  I've also thought a talk on beginning perl might be
> interesting.  This would be
> aimed more at those interested in whether or not Perl would be
> suitable for them and perhaps would
> be held on a different evening.  Who knows?
> The next Perl Mongers meeting:
>     Date:     Wednesday, January 9th.
>     Subject:  Randal Schwartz will discuss new features Perl6.
>     Location: Onsite! Technology offices
>     URL:
>     Address:  333 SE 3rd, Portland, OR
>     Time:     8:30 PM
> I'd like to have a social meeting before hand.  If you plan to be
> there, please let me know as
> soon as possible so I can figure out a nice restaurant close to
> here.  A small bar/restaurant
> named Produce Row is just around the corner and we can walk to
> the offices, but if we have a large
> turnout, it may be too small.
> Again, if you have ideas for talks you'd like to see or give,
> please let me know!
> Cheers,
