Re:, net and org domain names
Message ID:
Hi Mark,

Back in the later half of 2009, Herbert Breunung began to publish a wonderful series of articles in the german magazine "$foo" about WxPerl programming. I remember reading these with great enthusiasm, which led me to switch from Perl/Tk to WxPerl.

I still use WxPerl today for GUI development and see no reason to switch to any other Perl toolkit. I simply enjoy using WxPerl. I sincerely hope that a dedicated programmer will step forward as the new WxPerl maintainer. It would be such a shame if WxPerl were to now become dormant.

All the best and thank you.

Ron Grunwald
