Photobucket has been down a couple of days now. Apparently it was down a couple of weeks ago. E-Bay users are pissed. Tinypic is also down and I understand it is owned by Photobucket. Photobucket went down some time last night. It’s been down all day so far.
You can see which pictures I host in my blog and which I host from Photobucket. I may have to rethink where I host images.
What happened is unknown. I know the notices say maintenance. But, when I noticed that Photobucket was down there were no ‘maintenance’ notices. I got 404’s or time outs. That is not the behavior of an orderly maintenance shutdown. All we can do is speculate.
Yay! I came back up! 4/13 about 5:30 PM PST.
