I tried to stimulate some Perl interest from the Hants/Surry/Bershire LUGs.
I got nothing concrete but there are a few interested people in the area.
I'd be happy to help do something. I have a very introductory level
talk I gave to my LUG that I'd be happy to repeat, in fact I've been
asked to give it to a neighbouring LUG only earlier today!

The test of the goodness of a thing is its fitness for use. If it
fails on this first test, no amount of ornamentation or finish will
make it any better, it will only make it more expensive and foolish.
