The Second Week Of March In Photos

This week was a good week for taking photos. The skies cleared up midweek and I got a few nice sunsets. There was some freak weather midweek. On Wednesday, it snowed. Minutes later, temperatures soared and the sun was out.

Even though I didn’t feel like taking pictures, I did so anyways. It helps that I have my 366photos project going. It forces me to take my D200 with me everywhere. I take it to school, to work, wherever I go, it goes.

The above photos is one of the best of the week. I also have to get used to taking pictures of people. I tend to take pictures of buildings and landscapes. I want to do more portraits. Sometimes, I wish that my camera was glued to my eyes and that I could just snap away whenever I wanted to.

I spent part of the week without any image hosting. I don’t know what happened, but from Wednesday onwards, Zooomr was dead to me. I was able to ping the site, but the site didn’t respond. In the end, I was able to fix this by sending an email to Kristopher Tate. Minutes later he responded and he was able to fix my problem.

It was like my ISP was banned or blacklisted from their server. I could not see any hosted images on Zooomr, this included other people’s photos. As I have mentioned before, even though I sometimes complain about the downtime of Zooomr, their service is impeccable. Kris took time out of his busy day in Japan to help me out and I appreciated it a lot. This wasn’t the first time that I ran into problems and Kris helped me out.

Zooomr Problem

I’ve been trying to access my Zooomr photos since last Wednesday and haven’t been able to. Does anyone else have this problem? My wife told me that she could access the site in Taiwan, but I’m in Canada and I haven’t had any luck whatsoever.

Zooomr Exodus

Some Zooomr users have gone over to Flickr in frustration with the unavailability of 6 months worth of photos on Zooomr.

Zooomr Photos MIA

When I said earlier tonight that Zooomr was back up, I spoke too soon.

If you are using Zooomr and you are wondering where the last six months of your photos are, you are in for a shock.

The Zooomr team is currently moving their data from the US to Japan. The first step was to ship over the most recent data. As of last night, all of the photos from August 07 to January 08 are offline. If you are going through my posts and finding missing photos, that is the reason.
