Shutting down Zamples.com

2009-11-23 / All Blog posts

I’ve decided that it is long past time that zamples.com was shut off. The site got steady traffic, but it generated no revenue and demanded a lot of my time. Now that the server needs to be replaced, it is time to say goodbye.

I first created the predecessor to Zamples in 1994 for The Internet Factory, manufacturers of the first programmable web server. Eleven years later, it is abundantly clear that no-one really cares about live online code examples, at least not enough to spend money for the privilege of using the facility.

If anyone who reads this found the site useful, I’d love to read your comments. It’s rather sad to turn the switch off, but I won’t miss spending any more time and money on Zamples.
