come to a grinding halt — also, grind to a halt. to stop gradually (dictionary)

It’s the follow-up discussion on our research group homepage. The old homepage has a nice chessboard image as the backgroud. Obviously the student who first made the image had put in a lot of efforts.

Not surpringly, in the following five years, the succeeding webmasters balked at the idea of spending the equal amount of efforts to do that. “This makes the whole thing come to a grinding halt,” someone commented.
