Forever is a long time. Divshare going going gone?

I had always been bemused by the bold-type claim on Divshare’s site that they would host unlimited amounts of my media online for free, forever.

Indications are they will come up a few trillion eons short of the goal.

In the ongoing debate concerning campus-hosted versus third-party applications and services, it’s worth keeping episodes like these in mind. I have loved using this service, and recommended it to countless people here at UBC and beyond. I hope I remembered to add my cautionary disclaimers about back-ups and keeping options open…

BTW, I was alerted to this by two friends on my Twitter feed, for those of you scoring that wonderful and flaky discussion space on the “completely useless?” scale.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some warning email to write.
