Bookmarks Erased

Returning to the office today after vacation, I was greeted by the complete erasure of my browser bookmarks. I've been using SyncIT which was a handy way to synchronize bookmarks between different computers.

Early on I also used it with Netscape, but it couldn't keep track of different profiles and kept merging everything (my wife's plus my own at home). Then, they implemented a “one-time” registration which was $50 I believe. But still, no improvements, no changes, nothing. To top it off, today I submitted a support request and it replied that the database is not working, please try again later.

I think it's time to find a new solution for bookmark sync. I can safely say: Don't use SyncIT.com if you can help it.

On the plus side, it's kind of refreshing to have a clean slate. I never used 95% of the bookmarks anyways.
