This email is being sent to all registered users of "Opentalk" - our help forum which covers programming in Perl, PHP, Python, Java, MySQL and Tcl/Tk.
Opentalk has been running for over two years now, and this is the first time that I've even emailed everyone in this way; I'll be doing so very occasionally in the future (perhaps once or twice a year) just to update you on any really major changes to the board. By its nature, "Opentalk" is a board that most people visit only when they have a question to raise, so without these rare updates in email they may loose track. If you don't wish to receive even these very occasional emails, please let me know (there's a link at the end of the message) and I'll delete your registration for you.
