I hope your pictures come back Tom. Too much build to be missed in the future.

There is a ton going on with this build. Talking to Tom is like talking to an alien in a different world. You have to struggle to keep up with which high tech coating is going on what. Which electrical do-dah is going to replace normal, etc. etc. Cheers on keeping us up on the new .....

My account is paid but cant log in. Got this email last month and something tells me Ted is up to holding users hostage again :barf:

Dear Photobucket Members,

We apologize for the most recent site outage that impacted you over the last several days. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may have caused you.

We experienced a total power outage at our primary datacenter. Because of the abrupt nature of the power outage, our system wasn’t able to utilize backup processes to stay online without interruption. Over the past several days, many of our systems have come back online and we’re making progress so that our site is available to all Members. The process has taken longer than expected and we are working diligently to bring the site up as fast as possible without compromising any photos on the site. Most importantly, your photos are safe!

I’m sorry, I understand your frustration as well as the hardship you may have experienced over the past week. We all rely on trusted digital partners to make our lives easier and when they let us down it’s irritating and disruptive.

We’ve learned a lot from this experience and we are taking major steps to prevent this from happening again. We continue to work around the clock until the website is fully functional for every Member and we will keep you updated as things progress. Over the next few months, our focus will shift to rolling out a new website and new mobile apps, built on a more reliable platform.

Thank you for your commitment and loyalty to Photobucket!

Ted
