Mirror of the Joy Programming Language

I have been working on a pet project recently which was greatly inspired by fascinating little programming language called Joy. If you can, imagine combining Scheme with Forth, and that is basically what Joy is. It is a wonder of minimal, yet functional, programming language design, and a mind-bender to boot.

In any case, a couple of days ago, the original homepage for Joy went down. Considering that the language was created by a retired professor and maintained at his old university, there are any number of reasons why it went down, and seems likely never to come back again. With the hope that this language will not disappear from the web, I have mirrored the complete contents of the original Joy programming language homepage on my personal site.
