Dear Dr. Zack,

Thankyou for your email 16/07/2002. Our group appreciates the time 
and research you've undertaken to realize that our group is in need 
of your assistance.

We currently have a little library (mainly just some O'Rielly books) 
and have been thinking of where to get some funds. Amazingly you've 
come along just at the right time.

Fortunately, as you're donating so much to our humble group, we'll 
also be able to set up a permanent headquarters here in Melbourne 
(I'm thinking Docklands). There would also be plenty left over for us 
to fund some of the Perl Alumai's efforts with Perl 6... actually I 
think with this sort of funding we'll be able to fund the entire 
thing for some years to come.

While we're at it, we might as well purchase a football team (How 
about calling them the 'Melbourne Camels'?) This would heighten the 
profile of Perl in the general public.

Recently, as someone of your stature would know, the PHP people have 
been saying some bad things about Perl, but of course as you're a 
doctor, you're able to see through their double speak and realize 
that helping our little group is the best way to go.

We promise you Dr Zack that you're kind donation will not go to 
waste. (at our meetings some will go to our waists, but I digress)

Please forward details of how to receive your munificence as quickly 
as possible, we'd love to get this sorted by the time of our next 
meeting in about three weeks time.

Melbourne PM.
