in reply to PerlMonth on PerlMonks

I looked at davorg's home node and realized he wrote a column for this magazine. Perhaps that would make him a good resource to:
a) find out if perlmonth is defunct?
b) could we use the tutorials on perlmonks?

    Someone call?

    Last I heard from the PerlMonth people, I was supposed to be writing an article for LinuxMonth. When I was late (as usual) and I didn't get chased on it I assumed they weren't quite as ready to relaunch as they'd thought.

    I'll get in touch with them and see if I can find out what the story is.

      (Replying to my own post!)

      So I exchanged a couple of emails with the editor of PerlMonth. He says that PerlMonth isn't anywhere near as dead as we think it is and that we should expect to see new stuff appear real soon now.

      btw - my 600th node in the Monastery!

        Ah, that's good news indeed ! It has been inactive way too long, and the content there is really good.

        PS: congrats for your 600th node :)

        Well, it's now clear that PerlMonth is completely dead. Any chance that you have an inside line on its remains? Any chance that PerlMonks might be able to hork PerlMonth's contents?

        We're building the house of the future together.
