Switching doc:// from www.perldoc.com to perldoc.perldrunks.org

As http://www.perldoc.com is a yoyo, can we switch the doc:// links to http://perldoc.perldrunks.org? I like its interface better, to boot. :-)

Update: Changed link from perldoc.perldrunks.com to perldoc.perldrunks.org per theorbtwo's reply.

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    I just thought to myself, "Blast, it's down /again/? I thought the hosting move was supposed to fix that! Oh well, I guess it's time for me to change it over." Then I loaded perldoc.perldrunks.com, to find the approps places to hook to, and what do I find? DNS error, it's not there.

    Update: Which is a bit unsurprising, considering it's perldrunks.org</

    Done. If anybody has a way to search the docs using that site, I'd love to hear it, so we can move perldoc:// over as well.

      At the moment there isn't a search engine on perldoc.perldrunks.org - this is something that wll be added in the future, but I can't promise any timescales ($WORK and /pub always get in the way... :-)

      Could you make perldoc:// link to a Google advanced search with site=perldoc.perldrunks.org instead?

        Are you interested in getting help with search engine?

        I would gladly contribute perl code to index and search perldrunks using swish-e. I could even host search engine on my site if installation of swish-e on perldrunks is problem.

    Good point. We should also beg the question, why does perldoc go down so much as it is? Lack of resources? Software issues?

    Being a developer of commerical applications, I've learned it will take a LONG time before a large percentage of users will have their links changed over. I vote for fixing the problem whatever it may be.

    Good stuff... but how long before everyone starts linking to perldrunks, and that falls over... ?

      Same here. I'd love to see docs.perl.org hosted on the same rack as (one of?) the other machines on that domain once the Perldrunks generator is available.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

    Seconded.

    Just thought - quite fitting that Perlmonks should be using Perldrunks for documentation, since that's where it got it's name :-)

    I like the perldrunks site. Thirded!

    Update:
    All perl documentation links at PerlMonks now go to http://perldoc.perl.org/.

    The only exceptions would be links in old monk postings.

    We're building the house of the future together.

    Update (2009-07):
    doc:// links go to perldoc.perl.org, but perldoc:// (which is used for searching) now uses the Goog to search the perldoc.perl.org site.
    mod:// and dist:// are unaffected; they still go to CPAN.
