See the <a href="http://perl.plover.com/~alias/list.cgi?mss:2:200210:obggpecbfnhhklilkobm"> original email</a> announcing the list for details.<br> <br> The list was very successful, generating many interesting discussions on the corresponding <a href="http://perl.plover.com/~alias/list.cgi/1/">perl-qotw-discuss</a> discussions mailing list. Alas, the burden of writing both quizzes and summaries, week afer week, grew to be too much for MJD, with the sad result that the list eventually came to a halt. After a long hiatus, prompted by someone asking if the list was dead, MJD emailed the list and <a href="http://perl.plover.com/~alias/list.cgi?1:mss:1543:200404:mllfkpbblahkmhjnbmgl"> proposed a new scheme</a> for reviving the list- namely, that people would volunteer to write both quiz and summary, one or two per week, and MJD would act only as overall list administrator. Response was enthusiastic, and a new quiz was released shortly after, with hopefully more to follow.<br> <br> So, if you feel like sharpening your Perl skills, feel free to come on in and register to both <a href="http://perl.plover.com/~alias/list.cgi/0/">perl-qotw</a> and <a href="http://perl.plover.com/~alias/list.cgi/1/">perl-qotw-discuss</a> mailing lists (hit the "eSubscribe" link at the bottom of the page in order to subscribe) - the list is once again alive and open for business<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)<br> Just remember that now more than ever the success of the list depends on the community, so if you can contribute a quiz (i.e. the quiz <b>and</b> a sample solution + short writeup afterwards), please do so. offerk 2004-05-27T14:21:19+00:00 journal Jm.pm Meeting Announcement http://use.perl.org/~offerk/journal/18788?from=rss <p>The next meeting of Jerusalem Perl Mongers (Jm.PM) will take place on the 23/05/2004 (Sunday) at 18:00.<br>The location: ExLibris ltd.
