Flickr announced that it would be down today. It said the down time would be from midnight (for us in the UK at least ) on 22nd May and the estimated down time would be around 12 hours. It’s now s little after 1pm. so they have gone just over an hour over the planned time so far…
So, when I look at social media today it amuses me so much. Not only do we have posts from people moaning and groaning about it being down, like they didn’t know this was going to happen! We have people also complaining that it’s been down too long. Its so amusing.
Doesn’t anyone read anything anymore?
Come on guys really, obviously the maintenance needs to happen, otherwise they wouldn’t be doing it. And, I have no doubt it’s going to benefit us, the users, when it’s completed (if this doesn’t happen THEN it will be time to complain). They gave us plenty of notice, I noticed notifications well over a week ago that this was going to happen. So it hasn’t been dropped on us unexpectedly. And lastly, an hour over estimated planned time is nothing much.
So, lets give the Flickr people a break and let them do their thing, cos the sooner that gets done, the sooner we can get back to doing our thing…
