I won't be able to make it this week, but if anyone's interested in the five days of madness and mayhem commonly referred to as the "O'Reilly Open Source Convention", I can give a brief on it next meeting. I'm still recovering from Damian Conway's talk on "SelfGOL", a 999-byte viral quine that also manages to animate banner text and play Conway's "Game of Life".

First post!!!
(Sorry, my IQ is attached to the LA power grid. It kinda goes up
and down throughout the day...)

For some time in the future, I've got a couple of small apps
I can present... Yes, I take requests, and require motivation =)

1) Poll booth software that allows users to place multiple votes,
   and divides their single vote into "virtual" smaller votes.
   [To do - instant run-offs, then I can sell it to the US gov't].

2) Mail sorting, indexing, uniquifing software with a hand full
   of indexes and reports.

3) "How to" for desinging credit card gateway clients (all banks
   are basicly the same but each different and undocumented).

4) An expandy-contracty-thing for drilling down within a document.

5) Perl interface to the Linux module that loads new microcode
   into Intel PIII chips

6) I'm at the library right now looking at sime simple fuzzy logic 
   software in C that I could be persuaded to translate to Perl

7) Braindead webserver in Perl (about 60 lines long, don't remember).

One of those is a decoy, but I'm curious to see if anyone asks for it =)
Mind you, this is only if no one has anything...

[trying this again, first attempt seems to have got lost.. email doesnt
work for me]
