That's OK, I wasn't sure when you said you joined via gmane.org whether
you were a local or not (the LinuxSA mailing list has a lot of non-local
members). If you'd come in via http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/sapug
the "About sapug" reads:
"We're a Group of Users who use Python, and we live in South Australia. I
realise the name is deceptive, but there you have it."
Which is also deceptive because we like to discuss other languages as well. :-)

If you haven't already, read the link that John posted earlier about
LISP on spacecraft, which gives a good REPL story. f you're a newcomer
to languages in general, the best advice I can give as an "old timer"
(NE555? *groan*) is that old languages still have something to offer,
especially when their features start popping up in new langauges and
are then touted as "recent inventions" (insert XML/s-expr Java/Smalltalk

Except probably this one. :-) Enjoy!
