"List of sites hosted on this server"
I've been nosing around this site of 3,000+ Manila weblogs. Seems there's been much fuss about nothing. To me 90% are long dead. Many never went past the "It Worked" page — the first page that's seen when the site is created. Many more never went further than the year 2000. Only 4 or so of the 50 or so that I looked at were still alive, and out of them 3 were annoncements that the owners or community had moved to blogspot or liveJournal due mainly to the outage.
Dave Winer says that 40 or so had posted their URL to reclaim their site. So, I wonder how many are actually wanting to pay? Somewhere between 300 - 30 will be viable, of which 10% will want to pay = 30 - 3 Of which 10% would move their Manila site. So, tops, I reckon, 3 - 0.3 will move hosters.
There's four other hosters: ideaForest.net, editThisPage, Weblogger, and me.
Not, a big businesses. Hence, a lot of fuss about nothing.
