Brilliant!  Tentatively the schedule looks like:

* January:  Awesome things you've missed in Perl (PJF)
* February: The Art of Klingon Programming (PJF)
* March:    An introduction to git and github.com (Alec)
* April:    Perl scripting in Golly 2.0 (Tony)

I've also got a 25 minute presentation from Jacinta (with video
demonstrations) on a comparison of MVC frameworks (Catalyst, Jifty, Gantry
and Maypole) that we can slot into May, or combine with a shorter talk.

I've been updating http://perl.net.au/wiki/MPM with the new info, and have
just added these details to the 2009 meetings page.

Redesign and editing of the MPM page on perl.net.au is very welcome and
appreciated, and *anyone* can edit.

Many thanks, and all the best,
