[Philadelphia-pm] Meeting on Monday

Wow, these first Mondays come up awfully quickly, don't they?  We're
due for a meeting on Monday.  Since I don't believe we have any other
volunteers, I'm going to volunteer to do something.

This morning I gave a talk to some Mac weenies called "Pimp Your Mac
With Perl".  It was basically a repackaged version of Mark Fowler's
talk which you can find on his excellent website
http://www.pimpyourmacwithperl.com/ .  But whereas Mark covered about
two dozen things in 20 minutes, I talked for an hour on just a few
things.  I focused on how to use perl to:

* write your own services with ThisService
* respond to FSevents (the magic used by Spotlight and Time Machine)
* send Growl notifications

In a rarity for me, I did live demos of all these things.  In even
more of a rarity, they all worked!

Does this sound interesting?  The Mac folks seemed to like it, but,
you know, they're Mac folks.
