Subject: Two Documents Restored from perl.net.au

Hi all.

http://perl.net.au/ was a somewhat popular wiki for all things Perl. Then it
was heavily spammed, and afterwards went completely offline for many months,
and the admins have become busy. Luckily, in the past days I was able to restore
some of the contents from the Wayback Machine, and place them here and here:

* http://perl-begin.org/FAQs/freenode-perl/ - the Freenode #perl’s FAQ.

* http://perl-begin.org/humour/ - a page collecting Perl Humour.

I plan to restore more stuff.

For how I restored it: I tried several scripts (and a CPAN module) I found
online (which were hard to come by, and I was disappointed that apparently the
Wayback Machine does not provide a Web API), and eventually used this script
written in Python:


I had to modify it to not be recursive.

Anyway, enjoy!
