The first issue of “My Databases” coming next week!

As many of you know, I’ve been working on a free magazine regarding various database systems (dbms) called My Databases.  I hope to have multiple authors in future issues covering all sorts of open source and proprietary databases.

I should have the first issue done Sunday night.  I’m using OpenOffice, Scribus, Gimp, and Inkscape.

Perl is not going away

Sterling Hanenkamp wrote a great response to the now-infamous TIOBE Index article about how Perl is on its way out.
