Hey you, yea you.

If you haven't heard already, Yahoo is Shutting down Delicious. What does this mean for you, you faithful delicious user?

It means you need to go export your bookmarks RIGHT NOW!

Here's what you need to do. Assuming you're on a Mac or Linux machine, run the following command...

curl --user USERNAME:PASSWORD -o MyLinks.xml -O https://api.del.icio.us/v1/posts/all
Fire that baby off on your command line and Bam, all your delicious links will be saved in that MyLinks.xml file.

But wait! Maybe you're a little command-line skittish? Fear Not!

If you feel comfortable doing it, enter your delicious username and password into the form below, and I'll pull out all your links for you. (I won't record or store your username and password, I'm just using it to make a CURL call to delicious).

Delicious Username:
Delicious password:

UDATE: 12/17/10
Yahoo! has banned my IP from doing any more Delicious exports. Guess they're not interested in letting folks take their bookmarks with them :(
