    Hi guys,

    Jeff from RealJock here. FYI, Amazon S3 (Amazon.com's content delivery service, which we use to deliver some of our photos) is suffering a massive outage -- big sites like SmugMug have taken their entire service down for the duration.

    How this will affect RJ:
    1. You may not be able to view some newer photos until Amazon resolves this problem.
    2. We can't review new and approve new photos until the situation is resolved.

    We've been reading the developer message boards, and Amazon is working like mad to fix this (they should -- it's probably going to land them on the front page of the technology journals tomorrow morning).

    We'll keep you posted. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Jeff

    For a moment I thought my photos got me in trouble again and was waiting to get the boot. LOL!
    Thanks, Jeff! x

    Thanks for mentioning that, I was just going crazy trying to add some media to my profile and rearrange my photos. Oh well, there is always the beach!
