Farewell Five-Centres

Blogger par excellence Five-Centres makes his sad exit at 5pm today. Click on his link and whack up his hit counter one last time for a thorough re-read before it goes forever...

Hope Chris Hughes has printed it all out...

Great minds an'all that - I've posted with almost the same title today

Five-Centres said...

Oh Matt, it's been fun. But I'll still be coming here to what you're up to!

Thanks for the heated debates!

It was nice of him to leave his last post up long enough for those of us with proper jobs to get a chance to read it. Not.

Via the power of technology, and for BA, stored on Matt's blog for all eternity (or until he's had enough as well) The Last Post...

The final countdown
by Five-Centres
Now I've finally opened the bistro it's time to say goodbye. I'll be far too busy sourcing cauliflowers, working out how not to get to my brandy snaps to stick and reordering Castellas (nice one, OP) for any of this nonsense.

At around 5pm this evening this blog will disapper into the ether forever.

I would print it out, but it would take forever. I'd quite like to archive it but I don't know how, so it's goodbye from me. Someone keep a copy of the bistro menu, would you?

Again, I've enjoyed it, you've all been marvellous. Watch this space, I shall return in some form or another.

*walks away and sheds small tear*

A pity, but it really irks me when bloggers delete everything they've written when they stop updating their blog. Now, you'd be well within your rights to say something like:

* Ah, but the ephemeral nature of such a website means that it only need exist in the present, so there.

* Didn't cost you any money to read, did it? And it might have cost the blogger money to host somewhere.

* Yeah, right. And leave all the evidence there for the people I've just defamed to read. As if.

* It's my blog, I can do what I like.

None of which I'm attributing to Five-Centres, I hasten to add. But after all the work, attention and countless hours poured into such a thing, why not keep the content up for future generations to see? Harumph.

I've got it all cached in Google Reader. I have no idea how long stuff lasts in there, though.

Good news, it seems. It's all saved here!

Mark X said...

Good news, then. Hurrah for the internets!

Five-Centres said...

How did you manage to do that Sky? Where it is saved?
