Deltik.org is now Deltik.net, and every web resource should be redirecting to the new domain.
.org was originally intended as a top-level domain for organizations that didn't fit under other categories, and Deltik was supposed to be such an organization. Today, .org is often registered by non-profits and open-source projects. Although Deltik is still primarily focused on open-source contributions, it's not much of an "organization" anymore, as it's run by just me.
The deciding factor for the move was a nice sale on .net domains that I found by chance. I registered 10 years of deltik.net for $69.78, which I believe is quite a bargain!
I intend to keep deltik.org around indefinitely, though, since I've had it for over 13 years now, and there will continue to be backlinks outside my control pointing to the old domain.
The previous time Deltik changed its domain name was on 11 July 2008, when the community raised enough money to buy deltik.org. At the time, Deltik had no financial backing, so it took advantage of free hosting services for its early years.

The Deltik news feed just got a lot more content. Having found some old backups of this website, I performed a manual merge of the salvageable news articles and comments from all of Deltik's history dating back to 2008.
For historical preservation, I republished these old articles and comments. Most of the posts don't have a user assigned to them anymore, so they show up as user ID 2, "Legacy User".
You're welcome to browse them by going back to the earliest pages, They're probably not all that relevant anymore, but it could be interesting to see how different things were back then.

When people ask me about this website and why it looks so lame, I tell them that it's trapped in the past. Deltik.org looks almost the same as it did in 2008.
Well, I'm not changing how this site looks, except for the new lock icon in the address bar. I've gone through the internal workings of this site and changed many of the deltik.org hyperlinks to use HTTPS. Not everything on deltik.org is configured properly for HTTPS, though.
What's Not Covered by HTTPS
The only notable thing is that the domain is configured with wildcard subdomains (*.deltik.org), but I didn't buy a wildcard site certificate, which means that wildcard subdomains such as http://csrf.deltik.org/ will only be valid over HTTP, though they do have an invalid HTTPS certificate installed.
