Updates of Information related to the site, servers, and projects
UPDATE: According to the del.icio.us blog today, Del.icio.us isn’t shutting down. Instead it appears that Yahoo! is sort of pushing it out of their products & services list. Del.icio.us says it is going to continue to maintain the site, the data isn’t going anywhere, and there are no plans to shut down the website.
From the Del.icio.us blog post:
Is Delicious being shut down? And should I be worried about my data?
– No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.
With the recent leak that Yahoo is closing down http://del.icio.us (along with several other services they efficiently killed upon acquisition), I was interested to know how I can backup the 483 bookmarks I created and never go back to read. The process is actually very easy.
Well, I sent off my plugin code to Dan Zarrella, and got the Ping.fm developers API Key approved, and got WordPress.org to approve the plugin, and have been running it on my blog since its original announcement – but have run into a possible issue…
My webhost says it is creating a lot of “sleeper” processes on the database server, and using up a lot of the processor resources. My account was even suspended until I fixed it.
SO – I am going to be rewriting the whole thing, pretty much from scratch now, and it will only be loosely based on Dan’s version…
