Would you consider giving an sfperl talk for perl-web newbies on doing
web stuff using perl?  I've been doing sysadmin and general unix stuff
with perl for years, but have almost no experience using perl in web
contexts.  I was told on this list not too long ago that cgi might be
the way to go for me because I want to put web front ends on sysadmin
/ general unix perl tools (as opposed to developing web applications).
 Even if that's so, I'd love to hear such a talk.
