It was bound to happen, I found a good simple blog hosting service at Posterous Spaces annnnd its gone. Twitter bought them out last year and in about that timeframe was able to completely destroy it just like TweetDeck. Now they are shutting it down, what a difference a year makes! They are not just stopping new content, with 10 weeks notice they are complely going dark. That is why posting has been non-existent for the last few weeks, it has been a scramble to arrange for a new blog and carry over older posts.
Apologies if this sounds ranty, it is an accurate reflection of my state of mind on the issue.
