Cool.  For November I don't have a talk, so we should have a munch
then.  (That will be the week of Thanksgiving.)

In the meantime, it appears we may have some SF PostgreSQL Users Group
people at the Six Apart meeting (October 25).  That should liven things
up even further.  (MT works with PostgreSQL as well as other backends.
TypePad, Six Apart's hosted service, runs exclusively on PostgreSQL.)

Anyway, thanks for the announcement.  I especially like this part:

Yay for language ecumenicalism!  I think it's catching on.  I mean,
even PM.org is usig Mailman (written in Python) these days, because,
frankly, it's way better than Majordomo.  Besides, soon we'll be able
to write any language in Perl 6, right? ;)
