A week's notice?!

I know that there aren't many of us that still go to bolt, but they've just announced that they're shutting the site down:

here is the copy of the announcement that will be posted 'officially'.

Well, the time had come. We have decided that it is time to officially say good-bye to Bolt2. In the past few years Bolt Media has explored new ideas, and grown in a different direction. As we continue to move in this direction it has become necessary that we need to make some difficult choices.
One of which is the closure of Bolt2. Although we value our loyal members, we are clearly moving in a new direction and need to focus our energies there. We recognize that many of you have been on the site for up to 10 years, and would like to thank you for your support and for allowing us to be a part of your lives. We hope you are able to take the time to reflect on the people who you may have met through Bolt2 and maintain these friendships after the site is down.
Much like pulling off a band-aid, the closure will be short and hopefully not too painful. The site will officially close on Friday, April 6th at noon (eastern standard time). We recognize that this is fairly soon, but we are confident that you will have enough time to say your goodbyes.
Again, we would like to express our gratitude for your continued support of Bolt2. You have been a valuable part of our lives, and we hope to see you on Bolt in the future. If you have any questions please feel free to write to 

Truthfully, this sucks almost as much as TheSpark turning into OKCupid and becoming a matchmaker site. 

If any of you know how we'd be able to change this community's name to reflect it, speak up. And get some of the older bolties from years ago to join in the fun. It doesn't have to be about the trip; hell, that was just what spurred it for me, as we'd all been talking so long.
