Sounds interesting. SPUG meetings tends to go in cycles. Several
months in a row with talks, then several w/o. In the past, the months
without official talks meant there was no SPUG meeting, at all. More
recently, we've taken to using those as "SPUG social" months. That
way, those who are inclined to still get together and talk about Perl
and related topics can do so. I don't recall what the official SPUG
calendar says, but usually, the process is: show up at Taphouse Grill,
look around for familiar faces (kind of hard, if you're new in town or
it's been a while), and hang out until it's time to walk down to
Marchex for the talk (if there is one).

Generally, if you don't see an official talk announced within a few
days of the meeting, it means it's gonna be a "social" month.
It's difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary
depends on him not understanding it.
