Weblogs.Com: Transition plan for hosted sites.
EditHere.Com offers Manila hosting, with a 180-day free trial, $35 per year after that.
An audio blog post thanking the people who provided support while we were putting together the transition plan.
Dan Bricklin's ListGarden RSS Generator Program. "It creates and maintains RSS feeds."
Blair Fannin: "I'm posting the slides we're going to be using for our presentations on RSS at the ACE conference on Monday."
David Golding: "It worked!"
The News.Com article is the most accurate, but based on old information. It'll be interesting to see if they pick up the story's ending (knock wood, praise Murphy). One error in the News.Com piece, I founded UserLand in 1988, not 1998.
Slashdot did a follow-up. Good work guys.
It's true, people just love to jump up and down.
Sandra Pianalto's speech about the rubber balls and glass balls. The rubber ball will bounce and someone else can pick it up. That's your work life. The glass ball is family, friends, your health. Drop it, and if you're lucky it'll just crack. If you're not so lucky, it'll break into a million pieces. No matter what it'll never be the same. The people were shocked because I dropped a rubber ball, deliberately. Had to do it. If you don't understand, ponder it, and you'll learn something about life that's important. No Web project is worth dying for. Well, maybe it's possible that one is, but this one ain't it.
Michael Winser: "Dave, you dropped the rubber ball, on purpose."
Dave Rogers: "What is happening here is not very pretty, and reflects very poorly on this 'community.'"

Lisa Williams, a Thursday regular, has transitioned her weblog from Movable Type to WordPress and is doing something interesting with the Dewey Decimal System. Speaking of Thursdays, we're on for tonight. 7PM. It's the second-to-last meeting before my fellowship is over, next Thursday is the last meeting I'll be at. We should probably do something special? Maybe dinner at the Durgin Park?? Or the Harvard Faculty Club? (Might be too expensive for the bloggers.)
Thanks to Evan Williams for the words of support in the midst of all the heat. It's classy that we help each other when there's trouble. We all look good. This is what I like about Ev. He gets that. Thanks man.
5AM Eastern. We now have a transition plan for the corner-turn, and have implemented most of it. The plan exceeds the commitment I made, by quite a bit; and will be implemented much sooner than promised. I'm writing the heads-up statement right now. The outage should be, Murphy-willing, completely cleared by the end of the weekend.
