Flickr down 21 hours and counting...

Oh dear... a day for a major site like Flickr to be down is rather embarrassing...

Re: Flickr down 21 hours and counting...

just hopefully their transfer will actually be successful. I would have thought that their preparation would have made the transfer pretty quick.....

Meh. It’s bad but paint me unconcerned. I’ve been on the causing end of that type of planned maintenance window. I've also been on the solving end. Back-out is heresy, so they’ll pull their 36 or 48 hour shift (I’ve done both) and get the job done. The maintenance window where everything is under your control is a rare and precious thing indeed.

Yeah, I can understand the challenges. Patience I guess is the watchword. I hope once it's back up and running that the recent reliability issues become a thing of the past.

Maybe it's only Pro users that are still down. Mine did take a while to actually load my images but it's all working now.

Must have started from the end of the alphabet & hasn't reach 'P' yet.
Or they didn't think P was important enough.

And all because a new intern said, "What does this button do?"

Or maybe the site has been hacked by Huawei
