The case of the missing blogroll

Is it just me, or:

A) Was http://www.blogrolling.com/ recently taken over by an entity calling itself "tucows," which doesn't seem to be related to blogrolling in any way?

B) Fellow and sister bloggers, did your entire blogroll vanish, too?

If both A and B are true, how can one go about recreating a blogroll? Is any other blogger acquainted with another blogrolling service?


Update, 10:29 PM, same day: I'm happy to report that blogrolling.com is now back in operation, and my blogroll has also rematerialized. Whew, what a relief! I couldn't imagine having to start from scratch.

You're not alone--it's happening to others as well, including me. I found your post while searching blogs for the term "blogroll" to see if I could figure out what is going on.

The Blogrolling site says nothing about an outage. I've emailed them asking them what's up.
