Just to stimulate conversation around the water cooler...... CPAN is mirrored on playboy.com . Now that is something to meditate on. :-)

See Newsforge Article

    I really enjoy the little white bunny in my 'Firefox' personal bookmarks! .... Now I can say "I read playboy for the articles" and really mean it too!

    .:| If it can't be fixed .. Don't break it |:.

      I'm just wondering if we need to start including our measurements and turn-ons in our CPAN profiles. And if we can get any bugs airbrushed out before being mirrored.

    Have you configured CPAN.pm lately? iirc, it's in the first batch of suggested mirrors.

    It's also conveniently located in Chicago* so it should be speedy.

    I wonder how many people won't be able to access this mirror because of corporate policies about viewing sites with 'adult content' ....
    I already know at least three who were not able to access this site!

    Now if I could just get the braille edition of CPAN to go along with my braille Playboy... ;)

    Useless trivia: In the 2004 Las Vegas phone book there are approximately 28 pages of ads for massage, but almost 200 for lawyers.

    maybe this is why:
    "Perl core and CPAN modules documentation (Randy Kobes)"

    Food for thought, not fuel for flames.
