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

See Newsforge Article

and

Playboys CPAN Mirror

    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.

     

     

    *(if Chicago is convenient to you...)

    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!

      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.

    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.

    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!

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

    Food for thought, not fuel for flames.
