Re: Tilesathome Digest, Vol 57, Issue 2

Daniel Bossert-2
Hi all
As someone wrote he would like to see existing this project in the future - would it be an idea to ask switch.ch if they would get us this traffic it uses and host the project on their server or colocate our server there? They have mirror for many opensource projects so they could be openminded for this kind of project? Can one of the projectleader contact them and ask?
Kind regards
Daniel

Hi

That's sad but I understad that decision.

Well, as I have a server in the cellar which is running all the time (as I
have some shells on it), I will search after another piece of work for my
server
(http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_der_Projekte_verteilten_Rechnens), but
certainly no SETI...

Have a good time, Sebastian, and thank you very much for your hard work!

Kind regards
Daniel

Boy, that's a shame. :( Always sad to see the end of a project, even
if it has served it's purpose. t@h was the only way to get instant
renders after doing mapping work back in the day and really is/was an
extremely interesting collection of methods and technologies to make
that happen. I've enjoyed all the time I've spent hacking away at it,
whether running clients or keeping TRAPI running along.

I will truly be sad to see it go. (although it'll be nice to get my
20Mbit of outbound TRAPI traffic back ;)) I'd like to echo
Sebastian's statements above and say thanks to everyone who made it
happen. There were many hands at work in developing and running the
t@h infrastructure before it because as stable as it's been lately and
they all desire a heartfelt thank you.

-Jeremy
