Deleted Perl domain names

I recently came across the Deleted Domains web site. This provides lists of all .com, .net, and .org domain names that have been deleted or placed on hold in the last 60 days, and makes for quite interesting and amusing reading.

Using the 'power search' page, the site shows that (at the time of writing) 119 of these domain names start with 'perl'. There are less 'perl' names than 'java' or 'php', but more than 'python', however without knowing how many names were registered and not deleted, nothing can really be inferred from this.

Most are fairly boring (which obviously explains why they've been deleted), but I do wonder why perlforswine.com was registered? Do farmers teach their pigs how to program now?

However by far the best (?!), is perldrunks.org. Considering that monasteries often used to brew their own beer, maybe this is an opportunity to sell PerlMonks branded ale as well as the mugs and shirts? :-)

    also interesting is the search for names that *end* with perl. I found badperl.org (I'll be the first subscriber when it comes out :-), iloveperl.com, a shameless buyperl.com and a couple frightnening ones: phperl.com and montyperl.com!

    buyperl.com

    This month only, buy perl for FreeBSD and receive perl for Xenix absolutely FREE!

    Oh, um...OK then...Now with every order you receive unlimitted access to all of the Perl add-on modules...oh.

    Heh heh.

    This one is pretty funny. Surely you get the reference? "It's like casting pearls to the swine..." ???

    Anyone?

    Bah! My talents are wasted here!

      Nah, it's actually per lfors wine, a bust dot com that sold wine from the Icelandic region of lfors (pronounced 'chores'). So, literally, it's "from lfors wine" - ie wine from lfors.

      My talents are wasted here! ... guess they are :)

    OMG! ROTFL! Man, ++, I have to dry my eyes, and get back on my chair...

    Heh, I'd vote for Damian to write the 'swine book'. Hey, we've got Perl for Bioinformatics already, so 'Perl for Agriculture' is the next logical step, no?

    Next time when some sceptic ask me what I mean saying "Perl makes possible things easy, and impossible things possible", I'll cite you, if I may.

    You guys rock...
