Playboy has a mirror for CPAN

Filed under: Funny News,Techie Stuff — Suramya @ 5:56 AM

Ok this is something I really didn’t expect to find. Today when downloading perl modules from CPAN I noticed that the file I was downloading was being served on mirror.playboy.com. I took a screenshot of the window as proof

  1. and, what is CPAN? who cares if its been mirrored on playboy?
    why does it matter? Playboy isn’t bad, and you find that while you were downloading something,
    get lost who ever wants to get rid of playboy, the CPAN is retarted and you suck

  2. Woha! Easy there…
    I never said that there was anything wrong with playboy hosting the mirror, just that it was surprising and unexpected. It was like trying to buy a programming book and being told that you can get it from the local porn shop.
