We can't get a quarum at the San Diego Perlmonger meetings. Dozens of 
people go to the local VB meetings. The Perl Journal can't stay afloat. 
Not so with the VB organs. On a more personal level I am hearing my 
clients lamenting the fact that I am not into PhP and won't get into it. 
They insist PhP's star is rising while Perl has stalled.

Those are some of the reasons I raise the issue. I have no opinion about 
this - and - I have no opinion about that.

This came as a surprize to me. The VB group held it's meetings at 
Qualcomm/Ericson for years. I presumed them to be a M$ house.
