CyberNetNews - Still alive?
« on: January 04, 2013, 07:53:30 AM »
Visiting CyberNetNews has been a part of my morning routine for quite a while, but it appears the site went static a couple of weeks ago, and I don't see any links in their "Sponsors" section. Has the site died?  :(

  Nope, it's still there.  Probably a server in it's path not responding due to cyber attacks or just crashed.  Sometimes I can't get to certain websites and others I can for the same reason(s)

Guess I shouldn't have said "died."  :-[  Just noted that the site has not been updated for several weeks, and the last entry on the Twitter feed was December 11. Hope they are just on holiday.

  Yeah, considering they're just a husband and wife team, they're probably on vacation or something.  The last update on their website as far as I can tell was Dec 13th.

Looks like the site has been dormant now for 2 months  :(.  Too bad - I frequently found good news, application recommendations, etc. when visiting their site.

Many reasons they may have halted the news site:

  • Divorce
  • Pregnancy
  • Illness
  • Family Troubles
  • & More

Hey guys! We really appreciate all of your concern! Ashley and I are actually doing great, it's just that our focus has shifted over to her new site where I've been doing development work (in addition to my full time job) while she cooks and tests new recipes. We've been so focused on her site the last few months that we forgot to even post a status update on CyberNet letting everyone know what's going on. We finally got one up today though: http://cybernetnews....ernet-status-update/

Personally as a geek/developer I'd rather be doing the programming rather than the writing, and so having her write the posts/recipes while I do the development has been working out extremely. Not to mention the fact that I make out like a bandit when it comes to eating great food! :Thmbsup:

Yep, I'm a member. Back when I had time to be bored I used to peruse the forums quite a bit to get ideas for apps to write about. It's a pretty awesome community here and I'm glad to see it's still going strong.
