I received an e-mail yesterday that the Google Cloud free trial period is coming to an end.

This means that from the 1st of June onwards, every instance needs to be paid, starting with the smallest D0.

Loquacius was running on google app engine, and it was a test to see how the new Cloud Sql was behaving with a classic Django website. Given the fact this was just a test, I’ve decided to switch it off.

I’ve downloaded the fixtures of the blog (just three entries to test the blog) and switched the database off, disabling the billing and deleting the D0 instance.

The code is still available on github but unfortunately the blog engine will not be run live anymore from google app engine.

You can still do it on your machine, or have a look how it was on this blog post.
