Heh heh. :-)


This would make a nice fortune if only it were more self-contained. Still, I 
enjoyed it.

I sure hope Shlomo is not offended. He and the other F5'ers have done a good 
service hosting us over at F5, and I highly appreciate it. So thanks to F5 
and F5++ as well. I just think that the F5 location is inferior to TAU.

In any case, like I noted, since Eddie told me he'd rather see an OSDClub 
rather than a Perl-IL group, then we should try to aim for more universal 
themes. I'm not saying there shouldn't be any presentations about Perl, but:

1. They should probably cover their implication to other non-Perl languages, 
or be of interest to non-Perlers.

2. They should cover things that are not-necessarily Perl-related. Examples 
are foreign and exotic languages (we still owe ourselves a presentation about 
Scheme or C), general concepts and paradigms, etc.

one thing, and everything else says something else - E-mail will conquer.
