in reply to help managing modules using CPAN.pm

2. When I run CPAN.pm's shell for the first time, among the list of questions it asks, it wants me to tell it which mirrors to use. In North America, USA, there's about 62 url's from which to choose. Is there some option at this point to simply ask CPAN.pm to ping some of them and automatically select the quickest and least burdened ones?
Some monks here have been working on that — or, in my case: been thinking about it. I think Intrepid actually got the furthest making progress: IIRC he actually got a script to ping CPAN mirrors and then select some.

[oiskuu]: Don't you think it's disturbing that the washing machine manual would say not to start it with pets inside?
[oiskuu]: So, how long did it take you to grow up?
[oiskuu]: Have you ever had your temperature taken from the other end?
[marto]: I read about a case where people were at a launderette, or whatever they're called in the US, and as a joke, put their toddler in with the washing, then closed the door
[Your Mother]: (Work in progress.)
[marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
