I hosted my linkblog on from the early days, but moved to Pinboard after it’d been sold/bought and changed one too many times.

I’d been using IFTTT to mirror the links I saved to Pinboard over to, but noticed today the links stopped months ago. My credentials still work on the site, and IFTTT still lists the account as active, but when I re-connect in IFTTT I get a credential failure.

It’s not the end of the world; has had more down than a quilt of late, and I was just using it as a mirror. But it’s yet another step in the once-great service’s gradual demise.
