I will be very eager to hear of any success on your part in this  
matter.  For several years I've been trying to think about how the  
local Perl community might stage YAPC (Yet Another Perl Conference)  
here -- or even a more modest affair like a weekend hackathon.  No  
bright ideas so far!

In any event, I enjoyed the 2005 NYCBSDCon and hope to attend the  
next one, whenever/wherever that might be.
