So, by now, some of you may have heard the rumor that due to budget cuts, Yahell is considering shutting down the 2003 bookmarking service Delicious.


Now, this may be just a bunch of Chicken Little, Yahoo might balk after the uproar, but yikes, no matter what! It peeves me considering I spent most of this week fine tuning my tags and of course, I have many "unreads" linked, too.

Wah.

I did find backup instructions users can use (whether it's true or not, backing up should be gospel) from Switched.com that may save us from too much grief and avoid the running-in-circles panic of Geocities 09.

From Switched.com:
"...Fortunately, you can save all of your bookmarks. At Delicious, click settings, and scroll down to 'Export/Backup Bookmarks.' On the next screen, make sure you set your tags and notes as included, click export (this may take a few minutes depending on how many bookmarks you have), and the site will save everything to a standard HTML file."

Show of hands, who's very annoyed? LOL.

I don't use it much, don't have an account and it crashes my parents rather pathetic internet connection - but it's making a lot of people unhappy. :(

This is somewhat irrelevant, but I didn't want to leave this comment on an NCIS fic post ;) You seem to be the one person on [livejournal.com profile] team_mycroft who has slipped my friending net, so I've added you. If this is not kosher, just say so - quite easily reversible :)

Not a problem. Mind you, this LJ is pretty much SH-less as I haven't posted any of my prompts or my other SH snippets. :)

Not an issue :) Feel free to add back or not, etc. If in time someone doesn't add me back, I eventually switch them over to my bookmarks instead of the flist. But for the time being, I'm trying to familiarize myself with the last few of you on the team I don't really know, and adding is as efficient a way as any!
