Blogger's friend

The New York Times Link Generator, the invaluable blogger's tool that provides permanent links to NYT articles after their regular links have scuttled back behind the archive wall, was unavailable for the last few days and I didn't know why.

Now they are back with this news:

The server that powers this site has suffered a catastrophic hard drive crash and there are no recent backups. We've lost thousands of URLs. If you have any weblog-safe URLs that aren't in the database (or a copy of the urlarchive.txt database), please let us know.

If you'd like to help support us as we rebuild this and our other sites, feel free to make a donation.

If you're feeling generous, you'd be doing us all a favor to help out any way you can.
