Perl is dead.
Or at least, Perl.com is dead.
Or at least, the Columns section of Perl.com is dead.
The last P6 Digest was recorded on March 12.
The last P5 Digest was recorded on October 21, 2001.
The last entry in "Off the Wall" was Larry's State of the Onion 5, from last July. And the last Apocalypse mentioned was #2.
The latest Success Story (in the Columns section) is from last August. (Yes, there are more recent Success Stories, but apparently they exist only in Betsy's blog.)
As if there weren't already good reasons not to bother with Perl.com.
Perl.com is a crock.
