If I knew someone in the group needed a car, yes.  This is a social club as much as a programming group.  Perl Mongers is about the people not just the Perl.  Some of us are out of work and need jobs and don't mind working with something other than Perl.  Thomas knows this, he's not some random recruiter.

What topic?  We jabber about all sorts of totally unrelated stuff here.  Do we complain about Gabrielle and Sabrina posting PDX Postgres meetings here?  How about your GIT talk at the LUG meeting, Randal?  Should we stop showing funny movies at the beginning of the meetings?  No, that would be stupidly purist and unfun.

The real issue here is that its Java.  Get over it.  Don't snitty because someone mentions a technology you don't like.  I'm so utterly tired of petty technology wars.

PS  Also realize you were CC'ing all that back to the Proteome Software folks.
