DocSyncer Is Going To Shut Down

DocSyncer service is going to shut down. Below is a message posted on their website.

Thank you for your interest in DocSyncer. Our service will be shutting down on June 20th, 2008. All current users can continue to access and use the service until that time.

DocSyncer began largely as an experiment. When our primary startup (ProtectMyPhotos) began to appear that it wasn't going to work out, we wanted to try something radically different with our technology. In a very short amount of time, we were able to build DocSyncer for the world to enjoy. However, it was always an experiment and we weren't sure it could be a business. We've figured out in a very short amount of time that DocSyncer is a cool tool - but not a business. With no way to pay for itself, we'd rather shut the service down than let it fall into decay as our team begins to work on a new project. We regret that anyone who's enjoyed DocSyncer will be disappointed to see it go - we're certainly disappointed as well. Nonetheless, we made some great progress with DocSyncer that we're proud of. We synced more than 5 million documents to Google Docs - making us the largest user in the history of the Google Docs API.

Until we meet again, good luck and thank you for the support!
