Great meeting last night!!!  Thanks again to Bowne for the
accomodations.  Re: next meeting topic - perhaps an intro/overview of
CPAN might be snuck in...even if its just a guide to using  Or should we save it for another night?

I think that we now have a critical mass of people that are relatively
new to Perl in the group, so I'll be giving a Perl 101 presentation for
the next meeting.  If any of you fall into this category, or you are an
expert, and you want to critique my presentation, :) try to make it to
this meeting.  I want to be sure that everyone is getting useful
information out of these meetings.

Also, I'm kicking around the idea of having one "beginner's" meeting and
one "advanced" meeting each month.  Feedback?  Good idea?  Bad idea?

People understand instinctively that the best way for computer
programs to communicate with each other is for each of the them
to be strict in what they emit, and liberal in what they accept.
The odd thing is that people themselves are not willing to be
strict in how they speak, and liberal in how they listen.
