The services itself was once built for private use, but since rewriting code when old code fails due to "internal mistakes" is very time consuming the decision was taken to create applications as they were made for public use.

Tornevall Networks believes in independency and this is the primary reason for why it exists at all. The portals and applications is built around the thinking of “if you host it yourself, you can’t loose it when companies shuts down the service you hire”. There might be problems with this way of reasoning, as Tornevall Network is risking of being that company that shuts down one day. This is why we (I) build solutions that can be self implemented in other hosting environments.
The longest project running is the DNSBL Project - a blacklist project mainly written to stop web based spam, but for some years back in time also supports e-mail spam. The blacklist project is currently split in several parts. A regular blacklist, that checks proxies and regular mail and one blacklist with higher spam scoring; FraudBL.
