Literary magazine 3:AM, which went down - and lost its entire 12-year archive - last week, is back online

The acclaimed literary magazine went offline and its server disappeared on 2 July, taking with it 3:AM's archive, which had never been backed up.

'It never occurred to me that our server could just be switched off without a word of warning and that the owner would do a runner!' wrote 3:AM editor-in-chief Andrew Gallix to blogger Edward Champion. Gallix told Champion that there had been no warning from the host, RMI Hosting, that the server had been disconnected, and he was unable to contact the company as emails bounced back and the phone had been disconnected.

Support for the magazine, which champions new and avant-garde writing, flooded in on Twitter, and the website was back up on 7 July. Work continues to attempt to fix the servers and restore the archive.
