  1. Is Wake On Lan dead ?

    The short answer is no, and a little bit yes.

    I haven’t done any work on depicus for a while, ok 4 years, and the site has been bumbling along quite well. Indeed it get between 1000 and 1500 hits a day and mainly geek traffic (Firefox users account for 43% of all traffic). Now I think it’s time I updated it and open sourced the code. This isn’t going to happen overnight but hopefully over the next few months i can give it a facelift and refresh as well. 4.5 million page views and you must be getting a bit tired of the site by now 🙂

    One thing that will not be updated however is the Windows Mobile app. I’m with Skype on this one, it’s just too much work and the experience isn’t what I want it to be.

    The original idea of depicus was to give back for all the great stuff I have had for free from the interweb. I think I am getting close to that goal.
