Good to hear, thanks for letting us know. I just wanted to share with you all that I did get an update about this issue from our engineering team.

We have recently noticed an increase in connectivity issues with Amazon's cloud services and Flickr's image hosting. We suspect that these network glitches are having an adverse affect on our hosting, and we are working as hard as we can to strengthen our code to handle these quirks better. We are working to decrease the likelihood that such problems will affect us going forward as well as improving the redundancy of our services so that we don't rely as much on other sites being up. We truly appreciate your patience while our engineers improve this segment of our code and hope that it will have a minimum impact on you now and a positive impact on your website in the future.
