I went for one of my lunchtime photographic strolls today, and I was just about to upload a sample image to Flickr when I ran into a problem. The nifty little Flickr Uploadr thingy reported that it had encountered an error rather than doing its usual quick connect and upload thing. So, I popped over to the main Flickr site where all I saw was a message indicating that there was a problem and suggesting that I have a look at the Flickr blog, where this post let me know that they’d had problems with a switch. Nasty, that.
The clever bit is that Flickr have been sensible enough to keep their blog off their own network – it’s actually hosted at WordPress.com, which means it should stay up most of the time, even if Flickr’s whole network gets upset.
Pictures will appear when Flickr is feeling better.

 Well, it said something about a massage, actually.
