When Flickr goes down, God kills a kitten

Flickr 9000

In case you didn’t notice (yeah, I’ll admit that there might actually be people in the world who didn’t flinch), Flickr went down for a considerable amount of time today (something about moving 20TB of photos).

Well, Flickr’s back up again (thank G*d, I was starting to fade holding my breath so long).

And I gotta tell ya, the genius of Flickr is that, during their downtime, they put out a colouring contest. A friggin’ colouring contest. I mean, some people shy away behind geekery and tomfoolery to explain away the inevitable. Flickr? Nawh. It’s like a snow day where the busses never come — stay home fools! A make snow angels!

So I made two entries.

Oh, and I think I also found housing for this weekend, so thanks! But Boston, well, I’m still looking!
