4726Mothballing the Minciu Sodas websites
- Jul 5, 2010Hi Pamela, Edward, Franz, Ricardo and all,
Greetings from Chicago. I'll try to write an update every month or so,
what I'm up to.
Meanwhile, I want to shut down the Minciu Sodas server because it's too
expensive for me to pay for it (about $55 per month) and I don't have time
or energy or interest to organize others, nor do I see any commercial
benefit. I may have a new interest in four or five years, but also will
likely take a fresh approach.
My plan is to upload to http://www.archive.org an archive of my server's
content and code for the Minciu Sodas websites. I will keep some of the
websites (like http://www.ms.lt and perhaps http://www.worknets.org) but
give up others to those who might be interested to pursue them further
(like http://www.myfoodstory.com, http://www.pyramidofpeace.net,
http://www.includer.org) or otherwise sell the domains.
I plan to stop using the server at the end of July. That means that our
chat room and wikis won't be available after that.
I expect to direct ms.lt and worknets.org to another server such as Franz
Nahrada's where they might be hosted for free. This can be done later.
When I find time, especially if there is interest, I will try to make
available an archive of our letters, wiki pages, chat from 1998 to 2010.
Ed, what might be your plans for http://www.earthtreasury.org ?
