Don't miss the next issue!

This week, we're celebrating our 6,000th subscriber! And in 8 weeks we'll be hitting our 250th edition. And 10 weeks after that, it's the 5th anniversary (really?) milestone that we'll reach. I don't know about you, but I'd say that all those occasions call for a momentous celebratory camel cake. Enjoy! (this edition of the PerlWeekly, that is, not the yet-to-be-baked cake) ~ `/anick
