Re: Flickr down 21 hours and counting...

Part of that process was re-engineering our underlying infrastructure and moving it all from Yahoo’s data centers and onto Amazon Web Services (AWS), where SmugMug’s photos have been kept safe and secure for years.

As @Internaut has said I've been part of much smaller projects with similar scope which took a lot longer. Moving ALL of Flickr's images and pages from Yahoo! to AWS is something that I would never expect to go smoothly and certainly not quickly!

Most things look OK except at the moment they're telling me I don't follow anyone at all . I'm also getting timeouts on uploading files.
I'm a Pro user and while it's not great, it should be a one time deal so I'll keep my cool about it.

Speaking from personal experience, getting off Yahoo! is a goal worth paying a substantial price for
