Six Seven Eight

TL;DR: The Gallery has been archived. The site is no longer up but you can download a backup copy of the content.

6 years, 7 months, 8 days. I was born on the 6th day, of the 7th month, on a decade that starts with 8. Seems like a fitting day to end this side project of mine. At first I thought it made sense to wait for the site number 3500 to go up before shutting everything down. Then I decided to archive it on the 7th bday of the site. But the more I thought about it, the more everything seemed so arbitrary. Once the passion is gone, it is gone. There's no point in dragging things until you reach some random date in the future. And so I decided it was time to archive the site for good.

I want to say thank you to the thousands of people who wrote in the past few years, you all made this gallery possible. And also thank you for those few who donated some money in order to help the site. You all know who you are and your generosity was much appreciated.

I was planning to keep the site up but I then decided it was a better idea to archive it for good. Losing the content is a bit of a shame though and so I collected all the content and made it available as a static website.

Feel free to do whatever you want with the content. Keep it locally on your machine, upload it somewhere, I honestly don't care. The archive is a pay-what-you-want product and you can get it for free but hey, maybe someone wants to pay a dollar or two to say thank you. There are some kind people out there believe it or not.
