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.
