You Can't Keep Everything

The web is ephemeral. Like sand slipping through your calloused fingers. Like rain running down the tip of your nose into the sewer. Like a piece of pie at a 13bit editing session. All things disappear.

So went Meredith's Def Dictionary. It is gone. From the summer of 98 until some poor server's lights went out, it was there to illumine and guide the world, to spread HER word, the word of MER. But it is gone. We looked for it. What can I say?

The moral is: if you don't back it up, it never happened.
