packed.it ... bye bye my darlin'

I spent a month about two years ago to create packed.it, which has been used by few developers, which cannot compete with other known application even if it is absolutely unique.
Well, the domain is expiring, the site is hosted thanks to a friend of mine, the MyMin project in Python, PHP, C#, JavaScript, will be probably moved in Google Code if and when I will have time.

Right now it is not even working with FireFox, just IE7 and few other browsers ... the reason? No time to update it, and low interests from Web community.

So what's next? I have no idea, but if you are interested, packed.it domain is gonna be free soon, and my service is gonna be down soon as well.

Thanks to those developers who believed in packed.it and used it for some project :)

Awwww, say it ain't so Andrea!

Too bad. Was a great idea, luckily you don't seem to run out of ideas ;-)

Hope you're able to put it up on Google Code. Maybe someone(s) will run with it.

Michael, you are one of those developers I said thank you! :)

MyMin will be maintained and updated in Google Code, the problem is always time ... as you know :D

So true. Good to announce it rather than just letting it fade away.

P.S. You're welcome ;-)
