Doesn't Larry Wall live in Boulder? Getting him might do the trick. ;-)
p.s. No, I'm not volunteering!
p.p.s. I've got the Python book. I'm done with it. I'm not impressed. ;-)

> Since we have a new member (hi, Nigel!), I'll repeat what I said last
> The geekly conversation at these lunches is top rate. :-) Everbody -- mark

> On 5/1/01 I wrote background for why we used to meet the Thursday before

> event to the ColoradoSprings.com calendar. Thanks for the resource,
> Anyone have suggestions for where to meet?
