I find FasTrade are good for the UK, Ameritrade for the US.

With both of them it's easy to get a Real Person on the phone, which is important to 
me.

 I use stocktrade.co.uk who are OK, it must have been easy to set up, as I
 managed it.
 
 I've known other people to use etrade.
 
 Do you want to trade on foreign markets? If you do then you should check
 that this is possible with whoever you go with.
 
 Got any good tips :)

  Does anyone use any online brokers that they would recommend? I need

Technical Meeting Agenda

2001-04-12 Thread dcross - David Cross


Here's the agenda(!) for the technical meeting on 19th April (a week today)
at State 51.

Committee Reports:
T-Shirt Committee
Server Committee
Canel Visitation Committee

Lightning Talks:
Not Matt's Scripts/TT Views - Mark
Why Perl Advocacy is Bad - Dave

Talks:
"101 fun things to do with Tangram" - Jo
"parsing and semantic transformation of Perl code" - Robin
Music - Alex

Still room for one or two more lightning talks - it might be nice if someone
who hasn't already spoken was to have a go. Lightning talks are a gentle way
to get into speaking at meetings. Have you done something interesting in
Perl that you'd like to tell us about? Let me know.

Cheers,

Dave...

re-release of autodial

2001-04-12 Thread Aaron Trevena


the new version of autodial  - codenamed  DiaKiller,

is available at http://droogs.org/autodial/

it no longer kills dia, in fact it works quite well with a few caveats -
it is much easier to test with Dia, rather than parsing the xml in my
head. :)

From the FAQ (http://droogs.org/autodial/FAQ)
Q: Why is AutoDIAL so rubbish.
A: Because Trelane told me to 'just release it' although blame is
automatically deferred to Muttley because everything is his fault.

HEY!

Actually I think it was me who told him to "release early, release often".
But he's right, it is muttley's fault.

Re: Perl on HPUX

 DOH! Its running 4.0.1.8

Well, perl4.0 patchlevel 36 -- usually called 4.036, I think.

And AFAIK it's only supported in the context of the kernel debugger q4, not
for developing (sort-of like the cc shipped with HPUX is only to be used to
re-build the kernel and hence is still KR; you have to pay money to get a
"real" cc).

  Question for the list, i'm currently writing some scripts

 Last time I used the default perl on HP-UX, it turned out to 
 be perl 4. You may need a more recent distribution.

I don't think HPUX comes any newer than 11. He just needs a recent Perl; you
don't get decent Perl (nor decent cc) shipped with HPUX.

 There is also a 5.something version for the 10.20 and the 9.x crowd
 mentioned in the HP-UX FAQ

Perl appears to build quite well from source, as well, even on 10.20 -- err,
that's assuming you have a real cc, however (either HP's for-pay ANSI C
compiler or gcc, for example).

tentatively pencilled in Thursday 26th April as a good date for us to show
