 Subject: [Lisp] Reminder: Lisp Meeting, May 9th 7:00 at Trinity

 Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, May 9th from 7:00 to
 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.

 Peter Seibel presents: "Practical Common Lisp"

     "Should we vacation in Bali or Monaco?" the query
     put forth to Miss September.  "Well Peter," she says with
     perfect lips "Bali has better food, but Monaco has the
     'Sushi-Girl Backrub Team'".  

 Indeed life can be a chore, for these are the daily tortures of the
 Productivity Winners of the 16th Annual Jolt Product Excellence Award in
 Technical Books!

     Miss September giggles: "What were you thinking when you
     decided to write a book on Lisp 2005?"   
     "I wasn't thinking that it would be the #1 top selling Lisp
     book on Amazon." 
     "Nor was I thinking that it would go as high as #2 in the
     Languages & Tools category, #4 in Programming, #11 in
     Computers & Internet, and #543 in all books." 
     "I also wasn't thinking that Apress would have to do a 2nd
     printing, they were really grumpy about that."
     "...and I never dreamed I'd have such a deep appreciation
     for backrubs and Balinese food." 

 Peter Seibel is an ex-Java programmer who quit his job to buckle down
 and finally learn Lisp, shortly thereafter he completed "Practical
 Common Lisp".  Having finished the book, Peter is now available for
 consulting projects--Lisp and otherwise--as the chief monkey of
 Gigamonkeys Consulting.  He is currently serving on he Board of
 Directors of the Association of Lisp Users.
