That’s a wrap!
The 2012 baseball season has come to a close. As such, Kilg.us will no longer be sending out daily box score emails.
It’s been a tumultuous year for Kilg.us. In particular, we experienced a lot of accuracy issues with our data source (free MLB.com published XML feeds) and I heard more than ever about the lack of this stat or that stat.
I stopped using Kilg.us for my personal needs a couple years ago (I originally built it as a personal tool). Going into 2013, I’m on the fence as to whether to continue maintaining Kilg.us. Obviously there are costs associated with keeping the servers up and running (thanks to all of you that have donated to help cover hosting costs!), but even more important is the time it takes to field email questions and comments, fix things when they go wrong, and monitor the performance of servers, databases, and email services. We’ll see how that goes in a few months when the excitement of a new season ramps up.
In the meantime, keep your chins up. Baseball is only a few cold months away!
