Phew!

Glad to find that the 'Spill is still here, at least for the moment: see this. How is our archiving, Blimpy?

Yes, when I read that Guardian piece, my first thought was for The 'Spill.

Abahachi, you have unfortunately forgotten to put a photo at the head of your post. As a result I'm afraid we'll have to delete your entire blog immediately

mwah ha ha ha

As long as someone presses the big red button every 2 hours, we should be ok.

AliMunday said...

I saw it too but couldn't post anything as I was at work. Should we panic?

Blimpy said...

time to go self-hosting i think...

goneforeign said...

What does self hosting mean?

tincanman said...

sounds like my sex life in high school

Blimpy said...

self hosting = having this website NOT hosted by someone that may delete it at any time.

costs a tiny bit o cash mind.

As much as I enjoy the familiarity of blogger, I think the next warning should be our cue. Squarespace seems like a good option as it would allow us to export everything from the 'Spill, I can get a 10% discount.

I'm quite happy to contribute my share, if that's what we decide.

Mnemonic said...

Me too

CaroleBristol said...

I'll happily chip in too.

Abahachi said...

Likewise.

goneforeign said...

Ditto, Is everything backed up just in case?

AliMunday said...

And me.

debbym said...

Yes.

Blimpy said...

It's not backed up!

Quick! Everyone hide the copyrighted musics!!!

Makinavaja said...

Count me in.

Blimpy said...

Backup is currently is progress - 2811 posts and 31579 comments are being copied away from the grasps of "the man"

Blimpy said...

Dont worry gang - the 'Spill now has a twin!

There's no way both of 'em could get deleted at the same time!!

ejaydee said...

SO this is still the main one right? At least until further notice. We wouldn't want to go back and forth to check who commented on what post on which twin blog.

Blimpy said...

Yes, this is still the main one - I'm yet to sort out a lot of stuff on the WP site - at least now we dont have the worry that 2812 posts may be deleted

the other one is pretty though!
