Shame it's gone but I don't think it ever had enough participants to be statistically relevant.

Was there really any point to the past few years?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

There was a time, when I was proud to have the counter number in my sigs on boards around the Net. It's sad that she didn't make an open plea for some help regarding server time, etc. Judging from her blog, though, she's been involved in other pursuits and experiencing major life changes. More power to her! I hope all goes well for her. As for the Linux Counter Project... oh, well. Nothing lasts forever.

I have not the power anymore to further maintain this project. You know, your support to my person and my transition was absolutely awesome. But I had absolutely no help or support with developing and maintaining this project. There were nearly no donations at all over the years, I had to pay everything (server and such) by myself. And nobody tried to help me with the administration or the maintaining. And thus, as already calmly announced on facebook, I will now close this project.

Well, I get it but running a website is pretty cheap. You can host a website yourself with as little as $5 a month.

I hadn't updated my info in several years. I don't even know my number or even where it is at. Got really lazy.
