Update regarding Delicious and our Archives

Delicious made a post today which I feel is pertinent to our status:
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.
What is Yahoo! going to do with Delicious?
- We’re actively thinking about the future of Delicious and we believe there is a home outside the company that would make more sense for the service and our users. We’re in the process of exploring a variety of options and talking to companies right now. And we’ll share our plans with you as soon as we can.
We will be monitoring the situation. For now, the archive will stay at Delicious as we explore other options just in case.

Thank you to all of you who have been throwing out ideas so far - we're still taking a look over everything. It's possible that short of news that Delicious will suddenly be taken down, we will not start contacting people etc until after the holidays because of real life obligations. Please be patient!
