I just finally joined the mailing list for my local Perl Mongers chapter, DFW.pm, so I guess I'm officially "involved." That's "Dallas/Ft. Worth" for those of you who don't live in the Lone Star state. (Many of us locals, particularly those from the Tarrant (Ft. Worth) County side, take exception to calling it "the Dallas area.")
Can't wait until school's out (conflicting evening class) so I can attend a meeting some day.
