TapCIS was written when a 9600 baud [a still useful, but quaint, notation] connection cost $19.95 per hour.



Let's not forget that the typical user used it over a connection that doubled as the home telephone. Today, the average user has a separate internet connection with no need to mass-download messages for off-line reading. (I'm sure the usage case still exists, but it's not as common as it once was.)

Another issue, I'm sure, is that SigIII may not remain static. While some software updates are for "features", others are necessary to keep the bad guys at bay. No doubt, such changes would force yet more updates to the code.

It was a good run, but I can't fault the decision. There are bigger things to deal with.
