Shutting down Zamples.com

I’ve decided that it is long past the time that zamples.com should be shut off. The site got steady traffic, but it generated almost 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.

w3schools built their own client-side only version recently.

It’s rather sad to turn the switch off, but I won’t miss spending any more time and money on Zamples.
