vroom, Creator of the Monastery and Saint in All Our Books,

You have mentioned once or twice that you'd like to move PM to a dedicated server, but that there's a game to be played with the Everything Development Company to get that. And as we've all learned last night and today (I think I saw jcwren twitching from PM withdrawal) there's now a sizeable community of people who rely on this site.

What I'd like to know is if there's some way we, the users of PerlMonks, can express our interest to The Powers That Be regarding a dedicated system for PerlMonks. If I had it, I would simply offer the server; unfortunately, I don't have it. On the other hand, I do have an email client, and I'd be more than willing - as would everyone else, I feel sure - to let the appropriate people know how much we rely on your site, and how much we'd appreciate steps being taken to prevent a slowdown such as this one. Granted, we all hope Hemos will only get married once, but still...

And, guys/girls, please remember; IF vroom thinks this would help, and IF he posts an address to use, PLEASE use your spell checker, watch your language, and be extremely polite. If you have any question whether it's suitable, don't send it.

Update: vroom has a reply up regarding this issue, so don't send any email. Read his comments here.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
