It has been a great 3 months while my site has been up and active. But I must shut down the wap site due to emails from gameloft and other various companies about the game content on my site. It was not my intention to illegally distribute these files, but the past is done and the future is beyond us. Just deleting those files was just a spark for me to shut it down. Bandwith costs have gone to the upwards of $50 extra a month, something I cannot cover with my current status.

There are many great wap sites out there, use them before they, too, are shut down.

Here is the email from gameloft forwarded to me from my host:
