Eurekster – Alive!!

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

…For now.

Last week I wrote about how this great new (to me) service, Eurekster, had apparently died.

Makes me think of that Simpsons episode where Homer held Lisa's dying robot and said, "Linguo… dead?" The bot replied, "Linguo …is ……dead."

So, "Eurekster… dead?"

The reply: "Not by a <cough*cough> long shot…"

The service seems to be back up, the widget I installed is working again, and the search results seem fine. But who's to say when the next unexpected outage may occur? You never know…

We must prepare ourselves for the darkest of days, when we will no longer have access to search-wiki swickis!
