For those who hadn’t heard (or hadn’t noticed), Instagram was offline for a good majority of the day yesterday. Yes, I was suffering withdrawal symptoms… I didn’t get the chance to upload all the cloudporn so I’ll be making up for it over the next few days so stay tuned! Here’s one I uploaded of swirly clouds earlier.
If you’re wondering what the issue was, IG posted something on their help page. Apparently, storms knocked out Amazon’s cloud servers which disabled web services including instagram, pinterest and netflix. Kinda defeats the purpose of cloud hosting when something like this can happen.
Luckily, I still had Flickr and Tumblr to keep me company yesterday.
