As mentioned at tonight's meeting, Randal gives +1 for spelling Perl 
without all caps, but we're still at -2 with Kevin and Michael.

I'll weigh-in with my +10 club of dictatorial demeritification for 
forcing me to seriously consider activating mailman's moderation for 
all new subscribers.  And another whack for edgelink having personally 
spammed me with php jobs until I called (e-mail wouldn't do) their 
office and asked to be removed from all of their lists.  One more whack 
for good measure puts it at -32.  Bye.

The only thing that could save UNIX at this late date would be a new $30
shareware version that runs on an unexpanded Commodore 64.
