Perl Message Queue

I posted a message about message queues in perl to clpm but no newsgroup response. A couple interesting items via email, but that's it. So the PerlMQ project now exists on sourceforge. Of course, there's nothing there yet, but there's a mailing list and the pressure for me to make sense of the pages of notes and many ideas I have running around right now :-)

I'm not sure how long I can continue to do consulting work in addition to real work and having a life (or trying, anyway). We're soon going to have to get heavy duty into design at real work and then a brief (2-3 week) blitzkrieg of stored procedure -> session bean (likely) translation so we can let it germinate for a bit and see what we've got. At least life is interesting...
