UniqueID - or - How I learned to stop worrying and love the bless.
2004.04.06 @ 7PM

The UniqueID identifier number software [1] started life as a trivial 
experiment in Perl and CGI programming for Alan De Smet in the mid-90s.  
As Alan's understanding of programming and Perl have grown and been refined, 
so has that software grown and been refined. Alan's plan is talk about
how his fascination with unique ids took hold, the UniqueId project,
and what Perl has taught one hacker over the years.

Alan [2] will be travelling down from Wisconsin where he currently works on 
the Condor Project [3] at wisc.edu. Please join us in "the pit" at BDI at
7PM next Tuesday. New folks are welcome, and directions are available 
on the website [4]. There should be some books to give away as well.
