As you've may have already noticed, perl.org is back up. The move is complete (all 0.7 miles of it.) At this point, we believe that everything is working again (at least as well as it was before the move), but it's possible that we missed something. If you find something, please let us know at webmaster at perl.org, and we'll fix it when we wake up.

The perl.org datacenter move (that was going to happen today) has been postponed while we stabilize our network connection at the new site. The move may happen tomorrow, Sunday, March 22nd, or later this week. We'll try and remember to post here before we take things down.

perl.org is moving... down the street.
Our wonderful colocation provider, IX2 Networks, is closing down one of their Los Angeles facilities, and we're moving to another one. We're going to be sharing a cage with YellowBot. We're looking forward to this move, as the new facility is above ground, our cell phones work, and you can even kind of see daylight if you try.
Since we're going to be physically moving our boxes, this means there will be some downtime and service unavailability. For a few hours between Thursday, March 19th and Saturday, March 21st, some perl.org (and related) services may not function for you. (We are being vague because we haven't yet decided when to actually move the hardware.) We are going to try and minimize downtime as much as we can. No email will be lost, although it may be delayed. DNS services will still work fine.
We will update http://log.perl.org as we go.
