Chip Salzenberg Sued, Home Raided

Chip Salzenberg writes "In April of this year, Health Market Science of King of Prussia, PA, told police that they feared I was misappropriating trade secrets. That very afternoon, police raided my house with a search warrant to seize every computer in the house, paper files, CDs, and DVDs... even my wireless router and cable modem!" Chip was the pumpking for perl's 5.004 release. Keep reading for his description of his current legal troubles...

Version-numbering overkill

Saw this today in the CPAN uploads window:
IO-Toolkit-1.0.00010

00010 ?! I mean, really, isn't that over-doing it a bit?
Versioning is generally a Good Thing, but I think that the above is a perfect example of how anything can be over-done.

Jerusalem.pm Call For Speakers

The next Jerusalem.pm meeting is coming up, and we still need speakers. As this is becoming the norm rather than the exception, we've decided to try a new strategy to get speakers: we're going to offer incentive.

At the December Jerusalem.pm meeting, in 2 months or so, we will be raffling off a copy of Komodo 3.0 Professional Edition (http://www.activestate.com/Products/Komodo/). Entries to the raffle will be based on people who give talks. Each lightning talk (5-20 minutes) is
worth one entry, 30-60 minutes is worth 2 entries and 90 minutes is worth three entries!

You don't need to give a talk before the raffle to participate, you need only to commit to a set lecture on a set date. Good luck to everyone!

For more information, contact Eitan at eitan@perl.org.il

PS - Non-Jerusalemites are welcome to participate too!
