Help me get my stuff back!
October 28, 2009 12:07 AM   Subscribe

I used Infogami.com for some of my personal research. Now it's shut down and I want my research back, but I can't get to it.

Infogami used to be a simple wiki/personal page host with some features I liked (eg. Markdown instead of HTML). Now they've shut it down (without any kind of notice, if I may add), I can't get to my pages anymore and emailing them at the address provided (feedback/at/infogami.com) gives me the following daemon error:
Sorry,_I_wasn't_able_to_establish_an_SMTP_connection._(#4.4.1)/
I'm_not_going_to_try_again;_this_message_has_been_in_the_queue_too_long./

My site was password-protected so the content doesn't show up in Google Cache. Or in Google at all (I guess I checked the option for the site not to be indexed).

Does anyone have any ideas how I can contact them or get back my research? Do you know who the owners are and how to reach them? Is there some hack I could use to see my stuff?

Aaron Swartz is the owner. Try sending mail to me@aaronsw.com. If that doesn't work, send me MeFiMail. Aaron is a friend of a friend.

You might do a Whois search on "infogami.com", to get contact information. No guarantee this information is valid or points to the right person, but it might help.

The front page of Infogami tells you to email feedback@infogami.com if you want your data back. I'd try that first.

jillsy_sloper, I tried that, like I wrote. The address doesn't work, because I get a daemon error in response.
