Earth Operations Central began serving the internet in December of 1995. We believe that we have spent enough of our own money for long enough, and that there is far too little interest in this site and its contents to warrant any further expenditure of time or effort.
We began operations "when the InterNet was young". Now almost all information here is available elsewhere, often in a form or format which is much better developed.
Much of our content which was once both useful and timely is now mostly of interest to a very few historians.
We have placed this site in the Amazon Web Services "Cloud" as of 2013 May 16, as an archive. At least temporarily, the archive will remain but we will be leaving.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
