Hello there!

It's me, Gabor again as Mohammad is on vacation in India. Actually I am also on a semi-vacation in Hungary. I work some, but most of the time I spend with friends. So you are stuck with me again. This is not that bad as I can further explain what I meant last week.

Apparently I did not explain myself properly in the previous edition. I don't intend to include rather random articles about other languages in the Perl weekly, but I will not totally refrain from them either. I will mention my non-Perl training courses if I think they might be relevant to some of you.

Some people suggested that I pass on the whole Perl Weekly to 'the community'. I don't think there is anyone (maybe except of Mohammad) who would want to take over the whole newsletter. I guess if anyone was interested, s/he would have already offered to be part of the editorial staff. Let's make this also an invitation: if you think you'd like to edit the newsletter once in a while then let me know.

On another note, if you are using Facebook, I'd like to remind you that the recommended Perl group is the one called The Perl Community.

In any case, enjoy your week!

Gabor Szabo
