[ #23803 ]
Somebody asked "What CPAN modules should I be checking out?" earlier today. I thought the best of ideas is to go to and browse the archives... but the server is refusing connection, which means the webserver isn't running.

This site really is a most valuable resource, especially for people fairly new to Perl and CPAN.

Can it be started up again, or is it too resource intensive (read: costly)? I don't even remember whose site it is, some guy named "Mark" from, that's all I seem to recall. There's an, apparently abandoned account, advent, here. Or, should there be a mirror set up, like, under the * umbrella?

Update: Ooh, I just found a mirror site: I wonder whose that is, and how long that one will stay up.

Update (20:30CET): I see it's up again. The question still stands: what if it goes down indefinitely?

Loading... please wait.
  • that would be me. it stays up unless mark tells me otherwise. Stuff abnout mirrors []
    • What'd you do when the DNS expired (since renewd, not fully restored)? Is the mirror still sitting there, inaccessible-like?
      Were that I say, pancakes?
  • Well, there's always the Wayback Machine. However that shan't be necessary, as I've received the backups from Mark and am posting them on the new Perl Mongers hosted site (the URL's should be the same).
