Fall cleaning: shutting down some of my projects

Just a quick heads-up, I'm taking several of my projects offline as they prove to be too much of a hassle.

Mailing List Archive

Almost 2 years ago, I started a project to mirror/archive public mailing lists in a readable, clean layout. It's been fun, but quite a burden to maintain. In particular;

All of that combined, it isn't worth it. It got around 1.000 daily pageviews, mostly from the Swift mailing list community. Sorry folks, it's gone now.

This also means the death of the @foss_security & @oss_announce Twitter accounts, since those were built on top of the mailing list archive.

Manpages Archive

I ran a manpages archive on man.ttias.be, but nobody used it (or knew about it), so I deleted it. Also hard to keep up to date, with different versions of packages & different manpages etc.

Also, it's surprisingly hard to download all manpages, extract them, turn them into HTML & throw them on a webserver. Who knew?!

Coinjump

This was a wild idea where I tried to crowdsource the meaning behind cryptocurrency price jumps. A coin can increase in value at a rate of 400% of more in just a few hours, the idea was to find the reason behind it and learn from it.

It also fueled the @CoinJumpApp account on Twitter, but that's dead now too.

The source is up on Github, but I'm no longer maintaining it.

More time for other stuff!

Either way, some projects just cause me more concern & effort than I care to put into them, so time to clean that up & get some more mental braincycles for different projects!
