in reply to Off Topic: Java Monks, continued...

You might wanna talk to gregor42, a young man with some hardware, who wants to start CJAN, the Comprehensive Java Archive Network.

He is also in need of hardware, and has a website at, and more importantly

I, crazyinsomniac, would definetly like to see something "better", or at least more "monkish" (more navigable, more moderated, with a better search) than which seems to be a gathering of people saying: "yes, please, I have the same problem, email me if you find an answer. Thank you very much..."

I am aware this is really really Off Topic, but if we can use vrooms patched up version of the E2 engine, we can run this site completely in perl ;-)!!!

Also, I would like to have first dibbs at preserving my own username at JavaMonks. In fact, I would like to be an editor on JavaMonks. Either that, or vroom ;-)

Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"

    off topic

    OK, I suppose I've been out-ed. I hadn't meant to draw too much attention until the sites had gone up.

    I am currently developing two sites, & . These will also be theme/metaphor oriented, but with a different slant and technology base than here.

    Yes, one of the projects on the top of the list will be a CJAN-ish repository. Honestly, I don't know if it's being done by others also & haven't researched the name yet. Obviously I don't want to infringe... However, the purpose will be the same as the CPAN. A replicated architecture serving as a repository for useful packages to be shared openly.

    Many thanks to Vroom-sama for words of encouragement.

    Any interested, please find me...

    THERE... end of shameless self-promotion at the expense of the monastery... I humbly beg your forgiveness. But before --'ing me, please consider that this is not a root level node, nor did I offer this unsolicited...

    Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!

    *jots down crazyinsomniac under "reserved nicknames"*

    As far as editors and such things go, that will be determined later.

    Is vroom's patched up E2 engine available? Or is it too highly customized for the PerlMonks site that it would be easier to start from the basics.

    Update: After poking around the Everything website some more, I think I'll be able to do some design and testing of the site on my own machine with a few configuration changes (and maybe limited external testing by interested parties).

    Also: What form of contact would you all like to use to keep in touch? I'd keep posting here, but they'd run us off for being so off topic. How about an email list, message board, or on IRC somewheres? I'm up for any of these, let me know what you think.
