The Small Print
If you're thinking of using one of these services, please do so bearing in mind the following two principles:
- Be considerate
- These are not production services, and support for them will not be available through normal channels. They're being maintained by the owners in either their limited spare or personal development time. Please bear this in mind when making requests, and remember that a service that proves too much trouble may simply be discontinued.
- Be aware
- Different DICE Labs systems will have different levels of integration and backups. Please consider what the service provider says about the service, particularly before investing your data in it. In particular, consider what they say about their exit strategy. Make informed decisions
