(Extra)Goodshit has Been Wiped!

quote [ Well, this is awkward. The site you're looking for is not here. ]

Went to today, even though Fred doesn't always post on Sundays, 'cause I just had a feeling (I'm an RSS subscriber, but couldn't remember if I'd cleared the updates or not) and... well, hit the link and you'll see. If anyone knows or otherwise in contact with Fred Lapides, some info would appreciated.

(category is art, because Fred is a link-posting artist, damnit)
I'd hate to lose out on my daily dose of that extra goodshit - been hitting the site for years.

Never posted here before, but it's time to raise a glass to Fred, and to this thing here, whatever it is. I've been a fan of both for as long as I can remember, and when SE went away a while back, I was bummed. So happy that it's back!

EGS is another story. It is the first thing I look at every morning. It is part of the a.m. triad. Coffee, ExtraGoodShit, and an extra good shit. I too fear the void that I'll have to fill when Fred passes.

EDIT: It's back up, and this is all part of the past. The past, I say! My rarely-posting self doesn't know how to edit this into the initial post, so... yeah.

I wouldn't assume it's been wiped just yet. It could just be a downed server, a buggered auto update, etc. It was up last night, so I'd wait until at least Monday afternoon before thinking it might be serious.

I do like Fred's curating, but I wish he was better at attribution and source linking. At least here at SE, the norm is to provide a source link, and text content in extended if there are potential access problems.

The "wipe" was a play on words. A pun, I tell ya!

Sorry that is supposed to be plus 1... I am a big fan of Fred.

He just ran a fund drive maybe it is a problem with the bill?

Fred's ancient too. Of all the internet fears I got him passing away is probably in my top 5 worst ones...

I got a thank you! from Fred for donating a few weeks ago. He does good work.

Me, too! I've asked him what'll happen then, and he's quite blithe about it. I'll try again. We all should. He's an absolute treasure.

He told me this morning that his credit card had expired.

Page #2 is still up , but the homepage is still dead as a door nail.

Home page works for me.
