Ecomonkey has had to be put down

After several years of leaving ecomonkey.co.uk on the web for demonstration purposes, mainly for others to copy, to emulate or simply do it better, we’ve reluctantly decided to put it to sleep.

Ecomonkey.co.uk was officially dead by the end 2008, but still working from a technical POV.

Maintaining the code base indefinitely was never really a practical notion and we didn’t. We stopped refreshing the database long ago, since it was not making us any money, it didn’t justify our time, even though the slimmed down beast looked and behaved well in the front end.

The deprecated functions however were taking their toll, resulted in far too many warnings clogging up the logs and kept our very small virtual server overworked.

So we backed up the code and the database, and pulled the plug.

Rest in peace.
