To wrap up this past year of SPUGgery and plan for the next one,
we'll review what was good and bad, and talk about how we can
make things better next time around.
Issues like the following are expected to be discussed:
* allocation of new responsibilities to members
* speaker coordinator
* talk archivist
* job lister
* bringing Perl newbies back into fold
* ideas about new meeting places
* reviving collaborative CPAN project
* practicing Perl-Golf in preparation for TPC5 in July
* topics for future meetings
Santa Maher will give away the following books: "OO-Perl",
autographed by Damian Conway, "Perl for System Administrators" (two
copies), and "Programming Perl, 3rd Edition". The catches are:
recipients have to agree to publish reviews somewhere (web pages okay),
and members who have made SPUG presentations will be favored over

Admission is free and, for this meeting only, restricted to those
who have attended at least three previous SPUG or E-SPUG meetings.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive at the building's 5th & Madison
door by 6:45pm, which might be locked at other times.
We recommend avoiding the parking lot below the Union Bank building,
due to the very hefty fee you'll be assessed if you leave after 9pm.
There are plenty of other parking garages in the vicinity that are
more affordable, and some on-street parking too.
Pre/Post-Meeting Gathering Place
Come and pass the pre-meeting time with other SPUGsters at the
Rock Bottom brewpub, at 1333 5th Ave., (206) 623-3070, in
downtown Seattle. Look to your left, near the bar or pool table,
for bizarre yet strangely appealing characters wielding laptops
and hearty ales. Attendees tend to arrive after 6pm, and to leave
for the meeting by 6:40pm.
