flickr having problems

Looks like flickr is using someone else's thumbnails for Hannah.

That's tame! I saw a forum post yesterday from someone whose images were replaced with more pornographic shots from someone else. :(

Hope flickr resolves this soon.

btw what did you use for taking the screenie and doing the highlight? cute paper effect. *grin*

Well, we're sorry about the downtime folks, but some of our image caches flaked out on us, which caused all sorts of weirdness on the site. And not good weirdness, either.

We'll be back in a blip, and will keep you posted until we get it all sorted out!

6PM PST Update: Looks like we wrestled the image caches back under control. We should be back shortly now.

6:15PM PST Update: And, we're back! We do apologize for the outage. And if you see any remaining image oddness on the site, a SHIFT + REFRESH will clear it up.

6:45PM PST Update: We are down again. Please bear with us :/

7:15PM PST Update: Another engineer has joined the fight

I use SnagIt which is a truly over engineered piece of cuteness.

Nearly at the end of my trial

You probably don't need to be told it is windows only ...

It can scrolling pages too which is noice.

ntt said...

Nice little app, that SnagIt. But would you actually pay for it?

Flickr say they're back. I'm considering moving my photos to smugmug next time I'm feeling like paying for photo hosting again.

I made a heap of dumps for a work document last week or so, and it was nice to have a custom tool.

Irfanview can do dumps, but it is then up to you to do your own loops and highlights etc.

I guess there is always Print Screen and paint hey Samo !

That's Alt-PrtScn to you Buddy... :) And anyways, this means that I've got n00b skillz in a proven process which I can use on any Winblows machine... (unless of course someone decided to uninstall MS Paint for some reason...) ;)
