When you are the world's best and most fun website and when you have gadzillions of happy fanatics, you can expect to get a few hiccups now and then. You folks at Flickr are swell. Thanks for the ride of my life.
We're in the midst of recovery after some maintenance on the hundreds of database machines that drive Flickr. We posted a (belated) note on the site to let people know we are aware of the troubles. And then, we get a note like that.
FLICKR PEEPS ARE FUCKIN' AWESOME.
