[Wellington-pm] Meeting Next Month, Common Lisp meetup same week

Well, I'm still up for talking about darcs. I can't (well, I can  
but...) imagine it draging on for half an hour, but I could include a  
tiny section on my foray into introducing unit tests to legacy code  
via symbol table hackery. Any takers?

This is a weird way of announcing it, but I'm also going to be  
talking about a few Common Lisp projects at a Common Lisp meetup on  
Friday 16th Sep (also at Catalyst, details at http:// 
clug.lisp.geek.nz). Robert Strandh (visiting from the University of  
Bordeaux) will be talking about Climacs, a Common Lisp implementation  
of Emacs as well as some of his other Lisp projects. All Perl Mongers  
are very welcome to attend - we're not planning on evangelising lisp  
so don't be afraid :)

We'll also be going out for dinner afterwards to Kai in the Bay (see  
http://clug.lisp.geek.nz) and probably to a cafe for extended  
rambling about lisp and programming generally.
