Re: [Philadelphia-pm] Meeting on Monday

OK, since nobody has objected, let's make this official.  We'll be
meeting tomorrow night, Monday, February 6.  I'll be talking about
writing OS X glue code in Perl.  Details are below.  Note that due to
the length of today's Puppy Bowl, I have not had time to prepare
any material on IO::Kqueue.

As usual, we'll be meeting in room 307 Levine Hall, 3333 Walnut St. on
Penn's campus.  The meeting will run from 7-9 PM.
