Steve, I think it is a great idea to try showing off "ugly duckling"
(that Python is) to the world. On second look (as the first for some
reason always seems to go to Perl) Python is quite amazing piece of 
tool, relatively easy to master but very powerful, tool "for life" 
(if there is such a thing in IT world). 

I am puzzled how Python never managed to catch wider attention of 
DBA types. Hopefully your presentation will mark first step in 
"right" direction.


Looking forward to finally figure out "The Meaning of Life" on IOUG...
