This web site (along with its email addresses!) is going away in 2018. Thanks for the memories!

I am trying to do this responsibly, so here is my plan which will take place over the next several months:

  1. I am sending an email to everyone with a foopaux.com email addresses, and posting this thing right here, to see if anyone notices.
  2. After one month, I will announce this plan on the family Slack, noting whether I received any feedback on step 1.
  3. At some point after 1 October 2017, the website will have comments turned off, and will later (sometime during the next 6 months) be converted into a “static site”, meaning all content will be frozen and you won’t have anywhere to log in and post something new.
  4. I will assist anyone who needs their foopaux.com email or Google docs migrated to another account. I will post monthly or bi-monthly reminders of this on the family Slack.
  5. On July 17, 2018, if it has not already been sold for millions of dollars, the foopaux.com domain will expire. On that day everything on this web site will be moved over to a sub-directory on thenotepad.org or one of my other domains, where it will remain for the next several years. Again, you still won’t be able to post anything new, but you’ll always be able to refer to it if you want to.

I may change plans based on feedback, especially if your last or maiden name is Dueck, or if you want to throw money at me. If you have any comments, please email me at joel at jdueck.net.
