OK, let's sample some opinion.  Please email the list (or me personally,
if you're shy -- though you needn't be, really!) with your predelicitions
concerning these questions:

1) are weekend afternoons (once a month) worse or better meeting times for
you than the current scheme of Monday evenings?

2) would you come to perl presentations (ie, someone giving a structured
talk, as we've been doing the last few months) once a month even if the
atmosphere was more formal -- ie, in an office building instead of a bar,
no beer, no food (unless someone brings chips or donuts), etc.?
I.e., is the beer-factor *that* necessary?

3) are you at *all* interested in social meetings?  That is, if we
bothered to set up 2 meetings a month, one for "tech" (i.e., the
semi-formal tutorial presentation), and one for "social" (in a bar, with
anything goes) -- would you be at all interested in the latter, or would
the former do it for you for the month?  Or vice versa?

"No opinion"/"don't care either way" are valid answers.
