Well, I take it I would be the only one there if I went. Time to think of 
another idea. Lunch sounds cool. Can someone suggest a time and place?

I also have a question. I have a Debian 2.1 (potato) box with Perl 5.6.1 
that I installed via CPAN. It took forever to get the installation just 
right with all my favorite  modules in place. Of course the latest version 
of Debian has come out 2.2 (woody) that includes Perl 5.6.1. My question is 
- what will happen to my custom installation of 5.6.1 if I upgrade these 
boxes using apt-get or dselect? It seems to me that so many .deb packages 
rely on Perl that I can't simply choose to not install the Perl packages 
without getting a lot of dependency warnings. Unfortunately I don't have a 
test box to try this out on, only 3 production servers. Has anyone else out 
there done this? Also, what experience have you all had with installing 
5.8.0? Did things go smooth, or were there hitches?
