Hey there!  New to Perl.  It's used a great deal at my work for reporting and text processing so I'm trying to get proficient in it.  Reading "Learning Perl" (the Llama book) and am enjoying it so far (especially all of the comments).  Thought it would be good to join the local PM group in Chicago, but the website seems to be out of date.  The mailing list seems to be working but the website should really be updated because it gives the impression that the group isn't really active anymore.

Is this mailing list for discussions, networking (in the people sense), technical help or all three?  Out of personal interest, one thing I wanted to ask is if anyone has any experience with using Perl and Qt4.  I'm looking to create a GUI application and am wondering if Qt or wxWidgets is the way to go with Perl.  I know that there isn't a lot of support for Perl and Qt4 right now, but some are working on it:  http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/Perl+Qt4?content=69748  I know that wxWidgets works pretty well as a cross platform GUI.  Any advice or resources would hep a great deal.
