And that just goes to show you how much you can rely on
indefatigability to keep you going these days ! 8-}

You just did, and I appreciate it! 8-}
SPUG has been a great experience for me, and I've learned a lot
from it -- about topics other than Perl too!
Up until 3/17/98, I had spent lots of effort criticizing the way
other people were running their organizations, or bemoaning the
non-existence of organizations that would have made my life
richer. Creating and running SPUG was a different kind of
activity, being "creative" rather than "critical", and it brought
with it the satisfactions of making a useful contribution to Perl
and the community, and the benefits of putting local JAPHs
in touch with each other.
It can be easier and more fun to be a critic, but it's ultimately
more satisfying to create something important and useful.
Aw SPUG, I'm starting to sound like Oprah now, so I'd
better shut up.
Long live SPUG!
