[boulder.pm] another outing of some kind?

I'm interested in a Mesa trail hike.

It's a different approach to Perl mongering than the one taken in NYC,
that's for certain.  (I just moved here from there.)  You see, in NY.pm, we
debate the merits of the Peculier Pub (500 beers) vs d.b.a. (75 single
malts).  We still managed to discuss Perl, at least when Schwern showed up.
So I guess we did the standard Perl/geek stuff.

Anytime during the week works really for me.  Which means late afternoon,
around 4 PM, for this season.  Or you can join me at sunrise ;)

Well, the holiday season is in full stride, and on top of that
I just finished a conference and an *actual vacation*.  I obviously
have some ingrained Calvinistic tendencies from somewhere, because
I feel a strong urge to counteract all the fleshly indulgences I
have enjoyed recently.

Anyone interested in an after-work or weekend hike?  I'm thinking
maybe something around the south end of the Mesa Trail, which
has a moderate grade and some excellent views.

For those who haven't attended one of these things yet, here are a few
salient points:

1.  I haven't seen a buffed uberfitness type yet.  NO high-altitude
    training or specific aerobic capacities required  ;^)  Just a bunch
    of people out walking.
2.  Conversation topics tend to be the same Perl/geek wandering-thread
    type of conversation you'd expect elsewhere.
3.  Sekrit 3733t stuph is ALWAYS imparted.


Ob-Perl:  Lincoln Stein has a new book just out on network programming
in Perl -- along the lines of the Stevens book apparently.  It is barely
possible, based on an e-mail I got from its editor, that I'll get one to
review.  I'll keep you posted.
