Simplici7y is a file sharing web application for the Aleph One community, written in with Ruby on Rails and hosted alongside The Pfhorums.
The project is named after a 7-polygon mapping challenge, which focuses on doing more with less.
When Fileball.org suffered downtime in early 2007, Jon Irons saw the need to fill the gap as soon as possible. He came to me with his idea for a new project. Jon's support was fundamental to the development and successful launch of Simplici7y, and I consider this project his as much as it is mine.
Simplici7y came online on the second anniversary of The Pfhorums. After Fileball.org was destroyed in a fire, S7 became the de facto place to publish. In the 4 years it has been online, there have been over 150,000 downloads, 300 items and 800 reviews.
Notes for version :

- Moved the project to github
