Unmaintained Free Software is back (again)

Yeah, it's that time of the year (again)...

Unmaintained Free Software is a wiki which collects and categorizes orphaned Free Software projects, in order to find new maintainers for the projects — just in case you didn't know or guess that already ;-)

Well, the site was down for weeks (again), hosting support was non-responsive, slow and not very helpful (again), so I moved the domain to another, more pricey server (again), I waited for the domain transfer for a small eternity (again), and finally installed backups and put the site up (again) today.

Email is not working yet on the new server, I still need to setup Postfix or something. But other than that everything should work fine, please report any issues you notice. Oh, and I plan for some more neat (technical) stuff soonish, e.g. https/SSL support and a properly signed certificate thanks to CAcert (got me some assurance points at 22C3, thanks to everybody who assured me!).

Shameless plug: If you happen to know of any unmaintained project, just add it (it's a wiki). If you have too much time on your hands, go ahead and adopt one of the orphaned projects and eternal fame will be yours!

Wikimedia needs your help

The Wikimedia Foundation is asking for donations to cover their always increasing costs for hardware and other stuff.

They need ca. $200,000 for this quarter alone! Yes, that was a bit shocking for me, too... As of today they already raised $98,000 so they still need ca. $102,000 until 2005-09-08 (the "fund drive" is is being held from 2005-08-19 to 2005-09-08).

If you have some spare money, go donate it, help to keep the knowledge of this world free!
