Cool board express dead? Although the link still takes you to their home page, I just got this e-mail: "It is therefore with great regret that we inform you that the CoolBoard Express service will be discontinued effective June 29, 2001. It was a difficult decision for us, but one that we feel is more in line with Centerwheel's primary focus of providing collaborative customer support solutions to enterprise customers." Ack!

Yet one more proof that the "free stuff" era of the web is dying a quick death. The web road has been quite littered with rotting corpses for a while.

Cool board has been dead for a while. No support, horrible performance, the email just says what everyone also already knew.

Cool board is better off dead, believe me.

There's a collaborative blog tracking the death of free services: The End of Free.

Which is being hosted by a 'free' service fighting for it's life.

Ah, the irony.
