perlmonk.org is currently down (and has been for a few months). The hard drive experienced errors, and due to the location of the server, it was extremely difficult to get to (did you know it was actually in a small hut at the top of the Himalaya mountains, accessible only with the aid of Sherpas? I thought not.)

jdporter has possession of the drive, and is planning to obtain a server somehow somewhere and restore the hard drive to it. The perlmonk.org domain has also been transferred to his control, so all requests regarding anything perlmonk.org related should be directed to jdporter.

PTAV here

For a living I write software, ranging from full blown Windows apps, to web design & database, to embedded systems. For a hobby, I write more software...

[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. perl.org/ functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
