We'll expect to see you again on 8/9, when Damian makes his next visit! 8-}

Agreed! And that matter is being addressed, albeit slowly.

Since we're not running any Perl scripts from the site currently,
mod_perl hasn't become an issue. And despite our PM membership,
full consistency with other PM groups (which came along after
our founding, and "naming") has never been a SPUG priority
(as indicated by our retention of our original name). Moreover,
there are advantages to maintaining our relationship with halcyon;
e.g., they provide dial-up shell-accounts, which on occasion
we've used to run perl-scripting demos from Windoze boxes during

Many of us still think a group coding collaboration would be a fun
project, and once a "champion" for that cause comes forward, I'm
sure we could make some progress on that front. Any volunteers?
Or do we have to wait until Brian (Mr. Inline.pm) comes back
