Delicious. Evernote. Move bookmarks. Security Issues.

 
I've been using delicious.com social bookmarking service several years. In my toolbox were Firefox add-on, Android app and their Web UI access.

But, last Friday I had strange issue. I couldn't create any bookmark and I couldn't view my "delicious" bookmarks via web UI.

Then I've tried to get all my bookmarks via REST API and I had a success

At least I have a backup of all my bookmarks.

As an Evernote user I've decided to move/export/import all my Delicious bookmarks into Evernote. Very quick googling gave me this awesome solution:
Import Delicious bookmarks to Evernote including tags. The author wrote small script (for Mac/Windows) which properly imports Delicious bookmarks into Evernote. Just check it out.
He's also provided sources in case you'd like to improve/fix scripts: https://github.com/palaniraja/delicious2evernote.

Next day (last Saturday) I had been experiencing issues with Evernote also. Evernote resets my passwords and I had to re-type it. Very strange.

It looks to me that I switched from one unstable service to another :-) . So, I've decided to check twitter/blogs just to understand what going on. And, what a surprise:

Evernote’s Operations & Security team has discovered and blocked suspicious activity on the Evernote network that appears to have been a coordinated attempt to access secure areas of the Evernote Service. As a precaution to protect your data, we have decided to implement a password reset. Please read below for details and instructions.

In any case I've migrated all my bookmarks to Evernote. I'm going to use Evernote as centralize knowledge system: wiki, bookmarking, todo.

    like you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I believe that you just can do with a few percent to drive the message home a little bit, but other than
    that, that is excellent blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back.
