oh good. thank you. i feel it's more appropriate coming from you (or, anybody else but me, really ). maybe i'll ask hadrien if he wants to invite bookeen. he knows them already. be sure to let them know it's just an informal thing, with a few people meeting up for drinks.

And I suspect the Bookeen people know the Mobi people.

But some of the best things come out of such informal gatherings.

I am so envious. But, even if I were there, I would just be sitting there like an idiot not knowing what anyone was saying.....even if they were speaking English. I'm still trying to figure out what "mobiperl" is. I THINK I have it, but you never know......can you guy keep us posted on how things go???

Perl is a programming language designed for manipulating text, originally created by Larry Wall. Depending upon who you talk to, perl is either an acronym for "Practical Extraction and Report Language" or "Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister".

Perl is free and open source, and versions exist for Unix/Linux, Windows, Mac OS/X and others.

MobiPerl is a set of programs written in perl by MR poster tompe to create and manipulate MobiPocket files, and hosted here at MobileRead.

Clearer now?

Ahh, so it was you who opened that portal. They're still tracking its visitors down:

Doggone! (that's one serious expletive) Of course I'd love to come but I won't be in Europe until the following week and can't come early. But I will be watching here for posts and photos (and maybe live chat?). You guys are gonna have a blast. Enjoy!

I'll actually be in Paris the from August 6th to 13th. Talk about your crummy timing. My crummy timing, actually.

Come to think of it, next week was during the time we were originally planning to be there, but we had to move it for my wife's work.

Now I'm bummed.

Hey, this is shaping up to be a good night out - I think it's a great idea and congrats to all those who attend - shame I'm going to miss it!

I had almost scheduled my vacation to Euro Disney for then, but changed to WDW for convenience. I didn't feel like flying 18 hours home just to fly back to Paris.

well, i'm not angry. of course, i don't have an iliad, so that may explain it. you're welcome to join us ; i'll make an official policy of "no tomato throwing", will that make you feel safer ?

i thought i recognized your name from somewhere. i should have guessed that was you. well, if you ever would like to try to sneak back in (you know, for the tour de france, or something) maybe someone could get you a fake passport. then, you could just wear a false mustache and some sunglasses, and i'm sure you'd get right in with no trouble at all. i could even lend you my sunglasses ; i always carry a spare.

We seriously need to watch out for MB. He's clearly an overly talented character who's capable of so much chaos it could cause total devastation around here. I can't wait.
