– back again on

I really loved for a long time. Posted regularly for years, and I really enjoyed the underground vibe of the internet that this local tumblr-clone provided.
One year ago however, was not available for a few weeks after their system crashed. Crashed really bad. After a few days without any notice, they posted this messageย that they lost 2 years worth of data. Okay, it’s a free service, but the thought about how many hours I spent on the site, just to find out that they make a backup every other year put me off.
