The Perl Journal is looking for subscribers. It's only $12 a year and looks like good value. Check it out!

    The link given by astaines goes to the online TPJ back issues; if you'd like to subscribe, the main TPJ site is here. They say they currently have 625 881 subscriptions (maybe more since this was posted on Slashdot as well), and need 3,000 to start publication.

      Why, what's wrong with TPJ? Go and look at the back issues page. Do you think that those articles are all so bad that it's not worth producing the magazine again?

      Now I'm not anti-TPR in any way, I think it would be better to have both magazines doing well. At $12 each, this is hardly an expensive proposition.

      TPJ and TPR are not mutually exclusive.


        I have nothing against the old TPJ. I even wrote an article for it once.

        But that was a while ago when Jon Orwant was the editor. Since CMP have taken over the magazine has been a shodow of it's former self. Yes, there are still some top quality people writing for it, but I really don't like the way that the magazine and the subscribers have been treated by CMP.

        In my opinion TPR is far closer to what I liked about the original TPJ therefore that's where my support is going.

        And I'm not convinced that the marketplace is big enough to support both - but I'll be happy to be proved wrong.

    882 now, hopefully more. :)

    Update: They're up to 1600 now!

    There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.
