Backstory

I created this pastebin in 2006 and it's been in continuous service ever since. The popular pastebin of the day had been having reliability problems; mostly I wanted to make something reliable for fellow Django coders in Freenode's #django IRC channel. It caught on. By Django 1.0, the "Share this traceback" button using dpaste.com was added to Django's debug page, and it remains there today.

I welcome comments and questions — Paul Bissex, pb@dpaste.com.
