I asked this question on Super User and my question was closed as off-topic. Can anyone please help me determine where I should ask this question?

Here is the question:

"On their presentation of "Google App Engine" Google team members boldly said: "You write a code and we will run it for you". Then the "Google App Engine" was launched and it still does its job quite successfully - "Google App Engine" runs millions of applications of different sizes belonging to different users completely free!!!

Now, here is the question: Do You know of any alternative to GAE? Have You ever even heard of any such service out there that would run Your Python code for free?"

The existing answer to this question is no longer correct. Now that the Stack Exchange network has welcomed Web Applications to the family, there is a place for your question. There's a whole tag just for "is there an app that does ..."-style questions, actually.

  • WOW!!! Thank You very much for this information!!!

Unfortunately... there's nowhere to ask this. SuperUser, for better or for worse, only allows questions on software you install and run on your own PC. I imagine as web software becomes even more prevalent this may be revised.

If your angle is a "I'm programming and something doesn't work on GAE...", then StackOverflow might take it, but unfortunately you've hit that grey area that the trilogy just doesn't cover.
