I have used it in several ways:

1) First, it helped us find and fix some bugs in the SPARQL Perl implementations, RDF::Trine, RDF::Query 
and RDF::Endpoint.

2) Motivate implementing a new architecture with a Varnish proxy. Nice to see the speedups. And get 
bragging rights!

3) Actually see what kind of problems my endpoint had in practice.

4) To extract a list of endpoints that ought to be responding. I used that for my ISWC Lightning talk, and for 
a much larger paper I'm writing right now.

However, recently, it doesn't seem to be updating anymore, the availability graph isn't updating on the front 
page, and my own endpoint in there
http://sparqles.okfn.org/endpoint?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdata.lenka.no%2Fsparql
has just a single data point, back in november. I think this is an important service for the community, and I 
hope you will maintain it and develop it further. 

Cheers,

Kjetil
