Flickr down - Oct 20

In case anyone was wondering:

From the Flickr Blog:

10:05 AM PDT: We’re still here working on getting things up and serving to you, shouldn’t be too much longer!

9:18 AM, PDT: Hello! All hands are on deck over here and we’re still working on getting things back up for everyone. Apologies for the disruption!

8:51 AM, PDT: Ahoy everyone! Flickr is experiencing problems at the present time, and our engineers are all in the main engine room, working on resolving the issue. Please hang tight, and we’ll have things back for you as soon as possible. If we need to, we’ll post an update for you here.

Makes me start to wonder about all the money for the 'Pro' Flickr accounts. Where is it going if they can't keep the servers up? Oh yeah... I forgot that they are owned by Yahoo. So, that's where the money went...

Update:

10:50 AM PDT: Hey, we wanted to make sure you all knew, if you embedded photos from a photopage on Flickr, we are still serving them. So, if they are posted to your blog, your photos will still be showing there. What we are doing now is working on getting all our WWW servers back on for everyone; this includes bringing the API back up, which has been affected as well. Sorry for the downtime to everyone, we hate it as much as you!

(sorry, Dave, didn't see your post before I finished mine)

The servers I am sure were all just fine. What happened this morning appeared much more like a network and/or routing issue with the appliances and other hardware at the NOC.
