Good to hear.  For a moment, I was worried that I was wandering into
Lisp Country.

I wish I could dispute that, especially Randal :)

In my own defence, that was the freakiest neighbor I've ever had.  And
no, he never showed up to the meetings.

But I can comiserate with Jacinta as to how difficult it is to get
perlmongers to show up to a meeting.  I've found that beer helps.

Either way, it looks like I'll be missing the January meeting.  My
medical paperwork is taking longer than expected.  If I'm lucky, I'll be
there in time for the February meeting.
