I have full service. I'm just glad to know my images didn't disappear from this glitch.

I believe SmugMugs problems related to Amazon's S3 being glitchy/down and not SmugMug itself. Should be all good now.

Not really. Amazon.com (the storefront) went down earlier for a few hours about two months ago. That seemed to be a DOS attack. This time it was just an old fashioned snafu that took their s3 service down. And as a result, all web sites that depend on amazons s3 service.

It does show what complete bovine fecal matter that "99.999% uptime" is. You'll only need one event like this to ruin your record for the rest of the century. :biggrin: Me? I'm happy with 99.9% uptime.

It worked 20 mins ago, but now I am getting:

It's 12:10 am Monday and my new site is down ... arrrgh! Just shot 1600 frames at a two day equestrian event and I've got people emailing & calling me (at least up to 4 hours ago) to see if the photos were up!!!!! Just my luck ...

Take care,
Brent

They must still be having intermittent issues. At about 9pm PDT, some of my externally referenced image links were not rendering (hit Ctrl-F5, no dice). But image links from a different album were working. Go figure.

If you read their status blog, they had to take the site down from around 10:15 PM Eastern until 12:15 Eastern, because they missed a step in bringing MEMCACHE back online. As of 12:15 or so, they are saying all is back to normal.
