Wired.com has an interesting article about a new web site that for $40.00 a year lets you send an email message to up to 62 people after the rapture has cometh. You can even store up to 150 megabytes of encrypted data on their server to be delivered to up to 12 “non-believers” of your choosing.

You've Been Left Behind gives you one last opportunity to reach your lost family and friends for Christ,” reads the website, which is purportedly run “by Christians, for Christians.” The domain name is registered through an anonymous proxy service, presumably to protect the proprietors from the Forces of Darkness, and not because they're up to anything shady.

The e-mails will be triggered when three of the site's five Christian staffers “scattered around the U.S.” fail to log in for six days in a row – a system that incorporates a nice margin of safety, should two of the proprietors turn out to be unrepentant sinners or atheists.

No word on what would happen if the Rapture brought down email and Internet services.

Nor presumably any decent plan to deal with one of the staffers being hospitalised whilst two others were on holiday… ;)
