June Meeting

Title: June Meeting Location: The Second Cup, Bells Corners Description: We still don’t have a proper venue. I’m hoping to have that corrected by the end of the summer, so we have to suffer at a coffee shop for the moment. No formal agenda, just whatever we come up with.

Acanac Cable Connection is live

In a desire to get better internet speed, I decided to try out the Acanac Cable offering. I’m happy with the DSL service, so I decided to give the cable service a try.

It would be nice if I could inline an image from the camera or photo album.

April Meeting Follow-up (updated)

First off, I’d like to thank Yanick for the great presentation. It’s been a while since I looked at new features in perl and I’m inspired to install 5.12 and start utilizing all of the stuff that’s now available. Who knows, might be some good thinks for the $DAYJOB hiding in there. I did ask for a copy of the slides and as soon as I get them, I’ll post them to the download section.
