I was wondering if anyone has thought about giving this site a facelife to make it look modern. I know perl is great, and way better than php. However, having the #1 perl site look like something from 1995 only helps give credence to the "perl is dead" talk that's been going around. I even fell for the talk.
Not only that, but the site is incredibly slow. Which, again, only makes perl look bad. It doesn't make mod_perl look very fast. I'm pretty sure this may have to do with the free web hosting. The server probably doesn't have the juice needed to make it zippy.
Let's make 2011 the year of perl.
I'm willing to contribute. Anyone else?
I'm sure if we pull our collective resources together we can come up with something pretty amazing.
