The night the lights went out...

Sad news from Wired, Thousands of Blogs Fall Silent. I'd like to wish all effected bloggers the best of luck in getting archives of their blogs, and would like to encourage those readers looking for these blogs to give folks time to get up and running on new sites.

It is a fairly straightforward matter of getting a spare computer up and running and serving your own website (a search through the early postings here will document my process), and there are a number of hosting providers out there for those that need such services. It's a shame that some transition time wasn't allowed for this, but unfortunately having a backup isn't something most folks consider until it's too late...
