I take the view  as mainly a lurker that all questions  and discussion leads 
to a more informed base.  The questions  and answers on the beginners perl 
group,have to be considered  as its often the "blind leading the blind". With 
most programming and I think especially with Perl there is no perfect way to 
code, sometimes a better way exists for performance,understanding, or 

I'll take a daft turn and correct  a phrase used below. It's not "a rye", but 
"awry"  I think more of the Scots version "agley" that Rabbie Burns used in To 
a Mouse, when the mouse despite making a nice wee house for the Winter, had it 
all tipped upside down by the plough. Apt for server contingency planning.

Every time I look at the presentation list  for LPW it just gets better. Well 
done folks for the planning.  I'm going to have to try and forget some things 
make room in my brain for all the new exiting stuff.
