Trunk.ly acquired by Delicious

As of November 9, 2011, it was announced that the newish owners of Delicious had acquired trunk.ly (which I'd blogged about before). However, even earlier (in September), my manager had blogged about Delicious' apparent demise, as precipitated by the takeover by AVOS.

Trunk.ly has promised to remain functional until the start of next year, but I've found that attempts to use the Delicious import feature are failing (the page times out). The export for trunk.ly worked without any problems.

I'm sincerely hoping that Delicious gets their act together, and that soon it'll have incorporated trunk.ly's ease of use, and restored lost tags and works glitch-free for all the pre-existing (or surviving?) users.
