    According to the map at there's a Perl Mongers on some little island in the Atlantic, just north of Antarctica and east of Tierra del Fuego .... is it South Georgia ??

        Hmmmm ... could it be that those Argentinians are moving in on the Falkland's again ? ... I'd ring the Home Office if I were you, dave :-)

        When I go to the clickable map (thanks for the link, btw) it looks like they're not even on South Georgia ... must be on a bloody iceberg ... how cool (pardon the pun) is that !!!

        It'll be the Penguin that rules there ... not a windows box to be found :-)
