It is a sad day. I just found out that GotDotNet (http://www.gotdotnet.com/) will be shutting down. You can read their reasons on the site. They plan to shut down my favorite section (user samples) on May 22. I have used that site many times as a great place to get code samples or tutorials. I really hate to see it go. They state that is may be a redundant site with all the other .net community sites out there. I’m not sure of any the other sites (codeplex or codezone) have the same type of content.
I can remember meeting the team from gotdotnet at TechEd and seeing how excited they were to finally be part of the Microsoft Team (I still have the t-shirt they gave out). I remember talking with them regarding the GDN workspaces, and how I felt it was unreliable to host a project there. Infact, I had just moved IISreporter from a gdn workspace to sourceforge the week before teched. They were really eager to hear my reasoning for moving.
I am going to miss the site. Oh, to remember the days where .TEXT was a workspace and code sample.
