Exodus is one of the largest hosting facilities, and their major competitor, Above.net (owned by MetroMedia Fiber) is in pretty much the same boat ... circling the metaphorical drain of the dot-com world." Note that filing for protection from creditors while reorganizing is not the same as hanging up a big "closed" sign -- Exodus is still operating, and hopefully will be able to keep the LEDs turned on for a good long while (since Slashdot is hosted there).
