Don't miss the next issue!

Hi,

This week we have quite a few posts including some that we have missed last week.

Just one note to article authors:

If you would like to remind us about your article the best way is to send us a message to editors@perlweekly.com or to Tweet to us including a link to your post.

Making snide comments about the newsletter just because we have not included your article is not the way to make us happy. Even if you put a fat-smiley on your comment. (Luckily this rarely happens.)

Thanks for reading my rant. Enjoy your week!

Gabor Szabo
