Given my original goal of releasing Post Test Server and never thinking about it again, I certainly never thought I’d see the day I was writing a goodbye post. But, all good things must come to an end. In this case, a recent round of bot based spam drove my Google Bill higher than I’d like and after 15 years this seemed like a good enough reason to move on from this game.
So, without too much fanfare, I leave you with some things:
The source for the current version of Post Test Server v2. This is a Golang project meant to be hosted on Appengine. If anybody does anything with it, great. Just remember that if you host it publicly, you can wake up with a $1,000 Appengine bill.
The source for the original Post Test Server. I won’t beat around the bush on this one, this is a gross PHP script. But, it got the job done.
A link to Request Bin which is the closest similar thing I could find online.
