G'day everyone,

	Melbourne Perl Mongers will be TONIGHT, Wednesday 10th March.

This meeting will be the first in a series presented by Perl Training
Australia, trialing our up-coming course on Perl Security. Every month
there'll be a presentation (with notes provided) on security and how it
specifically relates to Perl.

At tonight's Melb.PM meeting, we'll be covering a brief introduction to 
security, a coverage of Perl's basic taint mechanisms, and the first 
installment of dealing with files safely.

	At the end of each meeting we'll be seeking feedback, and may ask 
participants to fill out an anonymous questionaire.

Date:   TONIGHT, Wednesday 10th March 2004
When:   6:30pm
Where:  MyInternet House
         Level 8
         14 Blackwood Street
         North Melbourne

I did have plans to bring printed and detailed notes of the materials 
being discussed.  While this remains the plan for future meetings, I'm a 
little bit behind in finishing the detailed notes.  As such, I'll be 
posting a link to these (in PDF format) once they're ready for release 
and review, which will be within the next few weeks.  Keep an eye on the 
list for details.

If you've sent me an e-mail to 
pjf+security-notes-request at, then I'll make sure that 
you're informed specially.

Also on tonight's agenda are further discussions on the upcoming Yet 
Another Perl Conference (YAPC::AU) to be held later this year.

	I look forward to seeing you all tonight.
