Parent is on-point.

Submission + - Classic Rock Concert Website Set to Shut It's Doors

realperseus writes: I just received an email from Alex Reisner, the administrator of Classic Rock Concerts, a website that allows users to document old Rock concerts they have attended by telling their personal stories and uploading pictures of ticket stubs. His current site is a "Ruby on Rails application, currently running on Ruby 1.8.7 and Rails 2.3.18." His current host, Heroku has announced its plans to shut down the Bamboo stack on June 16, 2015 and recommends that all apps be migrated to the Cedar stack. Alex is looking to get the site upgraded to Ruby 2.0 at minimum and has started a Kickstarter to keep food on his table and a roof over his head while he carrys out this work.
