FAQ
The NNTP interface to this list (and possibly other @perl.org lists)
seems not to work any longer. Does anybody know what the problem is? Is
it a temporary thing, or has the service been permanently disabled?

    The NNTP interface is how I read your message, and how I posted
    this reply, and I've changed nothing.

    Perhaps it was broken for a while, and is now working again. Maybe it was
    during the recent "perl.org got deregistered" fiasco?

    I've seen that the IRC server seems to not be working also.

    ping irc.perl.org
    Pinging g.irc.perl.org [217.168.150.167] with 32 bytes of data:
    Request timed out.

    I've also tried to get the list of channels with an IRC client, without
    success...

    Thanks, then it's probably something on my end; I just can't figure out
    what it would be. I'm using Thunderbird, and suddenly it stopped
    downloading new messages from perl.beginners (and I hadn't changed
    anything), while it keeps downloading messages from e.g.
    comp.lang.perl.misc.
    Perhaps it was broken for a while, and is now working again. Maybe it was

    Unfortunately not. I tried again a couple of minutes ago; nothing
    downloaded. :(

    Well, I'll stick to emails for the time being.

    Does the following work?

    telnet nntp.perl.org 119

    If it does try typing the following commands in:

    group perl.beginners
    stat 0000106808
    body

    You should see the message I am replying to. If you do, then the
    problem is probably with Thunderbird.

    The most important skill a programmer can have is the ability to read.

    Yes, it worked, and I saw the message.

    Yeah, probably. Thanks, Chas, for the help.

    I don't know why but bear in mind that this server has reaction times
    larger than others, up to tens of seconds.
