Massive data loss?!

I am sure everyone is talking about Ma.gnolia and the data storage fiasco. The fact that Twitter is unaccessible kind of proves that ... I think.

This story about Ma.gnolia losing data and in the end, taking days to recover is a frightening story. Like (hopefully) other net-using folk, I tend to store pictures and important work related documents on online sites.

This sort of story makes you really scared. What if my data is lost forever?

I am sure Richard Stallman is shaking his head and saying "I told you so".
