I'm gratified to know that SPUG has done a lot to bring Perl
programmers together and help them exchange information about our
favorite language.

Although I did start the group and run it for 6 years, two other guys
that attended the first meeting have been more active in keeping SPUG
alive in recent times; I'm talking about Andy Sweger and Colin Meyer;
please join me in a virtual toast of green beer to them!
