OK, thanks. I guess I can give you my password, but the best way would be for 
Gabor ( szabgab at gmail.com ) to give you a username+password there.

Not offline - online. For the Perl meetings. I need someone to publicise it on 
Linux-IL, Hackers-IL, Whatsup, Linmag, etc.

No, that's not necessary.

You may have lost context. Until now, the Perl mongers had me as their sole 
publicity officer and their web-site maintainer. However, now I find that I 
have much better things to do with my time. It is not very time consuming, 
but still annoying. I've grown past that.

So we're looking for a volunteer.

Regards,

	Shlomi Fish
