3651.  However, some of those are likely to be duplicates.

Lack of time to learn the proper way to integrate the tip count into
Drupal.  I could hack something in place but it wouldn't be the "right"
way to do it.

It was decided the m.e.o was a waste of resources (bandwidth, time, CPU
power).  We no longer wanted to do hosting and duplicate f2o.org.  Most
of the e-mail we were getting was SPAM and most of the people signing up
where leeches.  The plan was to create evolters.org which would be where
community members could have "space".  I believe that the plan was to
have it limited to things like blogs, gallerys, etc.

d.e.o still exists.  Neither d.e.o nor l.e.o were converted to Drupal
because of a lack of time and/or will.
