 Yeah, I've got about 10 or so left I think.

Can I reserve 2 to go to the States? I guess I should enquire about

 And how can we get them to the states?  Now that I think of it, do the
 vienna/belfast contingents still have the ones that didn't make it
 here last month?  I know at least a couple of ny.pm people want
 them...

This is where my two are going.

I'm going to the states "soon" but there's nothing certain.

Hiring

2001-01-08 Thread David Hodgkinson


I mentioned this a London.pm last week but Reading Room are
hiring. Perl, database, Linux/Unix, designers, HTML slaves, producers,
project managers.

If you are "polishing up your portfolio site" right now and you want
to work somewhere manic, challenging and where you get to do lots of
neat stuff under your own steam, mail me a CV.

Also, if you know anyone good who got laid (off) recently, let me
know.

Ta,

Dave

(If I posted a variant on this already, I'm sorry, I was messing with
my .gnus file and Bad Things happened).

It took me three bookshops on Charing Cross Road to get a perl library

having to go into Foyle's. Yeah!

The bonus was a second edition of Jon Bentley's "Programming
