I feel naked without my Zooomr

Posted by briandh on May 30, 2007

Things are looking a little bare around here at the moment – no photos.

Zooomr, where all my photos are hosted is currently down. They have not been having a very good time of it. It’s a bit like one of those good-news-bad-news stories:

  • They tried to launch their “Mark III” version of the site several weeks ago …
  • … and discovered they had seriously under-estimated the scale of the task so had to abandon it.
  • They then had a hard disk cough blood on them …
  • … and then nursed it back to health
  • They tried another launch a little over a week ago …
  • .. and it took longer than anticipate.
  • But they stuck with it and they got the site up yesterday …
  • … and their server crashed after 10 minutes.

I’ll not go into details here as you will find it being blogged about all over the place:

To anyone that says: “Oh, snivel snivel, I’ve lost all my photos – what have they DONE!” two things:

  1. Backups – they have them even if your too stupid to have made your own.
  2. It’s a free service on the Internet run by two guys on a shoe-string – see 1. above.

I truly hope it works out for them. It’s a fun site and the features promised in Mark III looked excellent.

Good luck guys.
