This is the twenty-first weekly summary of the London Perl Mongers
mailing list. This is brought to you from yapc::NorthAmerica during
Brian Ingerson's "CPAN, PPM and the Future" talk. For the quiet week

In other news: Microsoft SQL Server sucking (SQueaL), Sun Ultra
Enterprise 10000, google++, the Sony Clie being small and cute,
checking out pubs for the next meet, buffy, being
hacked (Catalog module apparently), 'back doors' in Linux,
obnoxious sigs: and a geeknic with an inflatable penguin:

Eh?, leon
