I too noticed some of the links were broken to London Perl Monger talks - in particular some of the talks Ivor Williams gave. Some of these seem to have moved to http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/ivorw/slides and also http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/ivorw/slides/geogmod.ppt which is missing a link from the top page.
As Ivor is recently deceased, I imagine they may not stay there indefinitely and it might be a nice small tribute to Ivor if we copied them to the London Perl Monger site so they don't disappear. I found Ivor's presentations by searching for the file names on google - it may well be possible to track down a lot of other broken link files this way.
For those who don't know: a memorial event for Ivor Williams will take place on the 25th April (i.e. next Saturday), beginning at 2pm, at the West London Trades Union Club, Acton High Street (http://www.wltuc.org/)
If you are planning to attend this event, please respond to (e-mail ian.grieve at stcatz-oxford.com), in order that catering can be organised in advance.
