No More Wishlist :-(

from the "I wish I had a WishList" dept

1st May 2016:

The WishList is no more.

I created the WishList back in 2007 or so; it was useful to a few people, but I don't have the time to maintain it and keep it secured to today's standards. There are many other websites which do offer (much better) WishList services.

I can't guarantee that thay'll be so unobtrusive into your personal data, lifestyle preferences, and other monetisable data, but at least they are there, and are available to use.

Thank you for using the WishList, if you have; I hope that you found it useful.

I just want to make it clear that although I am closing this service down because I can't take the time to ensure that it is properly secured, that does not mean that I am aware of any security breaches to the WishList. I am not aware of any breaches. However, I am aware that the security best practices of 2007 are not the same as the best practices of 2016 - things have moved on a lot, and whilst I could take the time to bring the service up to date, there are other, more useful things, that I could be doing with my time.

So, once again, thank you for sharing in this journey with me, I hope that you found it useful, but for now, and for the foreseeable future — well, it doesn't have any future!

All accounts have been disabled; your personal data has been deleted securely from the live website. I do have a backup, which I plan to delete in 31 days (1st June 2016), so if you would like to get a copy, please send email to before 1st June 2016.
