Well, it's been a fun weekend dealing with my friend Flickr. First, I couldn't sign in, time after time after time. Emails, help forum, blah, blah, blah. Finally figured a run around so I could avoid the blank screen and get into my own account, just so I could... pay them! So I hit the pay button and... the second blank screen! Emails, help forum, blah, blah, blah.
Finally figured the second run around, and finally paid. Now I have to wait for their backlog to clear from all the other thousands having the same problems so they can accept me again into their fold.
You'd think they would make some attempt to fix this, since we pay them, rather than telling us to work it out ourselves and fix it for them. Somehow, I don't remember doing all this when service was... free.
