del.icio.us down
del.icio.us reported a weekend power failure took down their data center and wiped out their data. Del.icio.us provides a useful, versatile service used by Freshblog and many thousands of other blogs and websites.

This outage isn't critical to Freshblog. You can't see categories or tag clouds right now, but in the short term that isn't a huge loss. Are there any websites or blogs for which del.icio.us is mission critical? Has this single point of failure completely crippled the function of any website out there?

Indeed, the service is down again. Amazing. You may want to move to Simpy. Even people on del.icio.us' own blog are talking about Simpy, and Simpy's blog has some relevant information.

I believe users of Flock might find it rather frustrating, if what I have heard about Flock using Del.icio.us as its bookmarks repository, is right.
